I have a spcial question about secirity update of Firefox 4 on F-15.
you could read, that upstream doensn't release the security update
users should update to Firefox 5.
My question is, how should fedora handle this cas. I can't believe, that
we shouldn't get any
security updates for Firefox until the release of F-16.
I would like to note that I am aware of that 32 bit systems will not
work after 2038. But does that mean that they can not do simple date
$now = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', time());
$future = "2100-01-01 01:01:01";
$now_stt = strtotime($now);
$future_stt = strtotime($future);
string(19) "2011-06-27 09:17:10" int(1309159030) string(19)
"2100-01-01 01:01:01" bool(false)
string(19) "2011-06-27 09:18:28" int(1309159108) string(19)
"2100-01-01 01:01:01" int(4102444861)
When I suspend or switch user gnome-screensaver should kick in (and
continue if successful).
It seems* instead that gnome-screensaver kicks in on resume, or when I
change back to the user.
* I see a flash of the user's screen or (sometimes) the screenlock
doesn't work at all.
I orphaned the gnet2 package as workrave does not depend on it anymore.
Feel free to take it - especially if your package depends on it. Even
better would be to drop it as upstream is dead and GIO should be used
However these packages still depend on it in Rawhide:
No matter how far down the wrong road you've gone, turn back.
Now that the revised orphaning procedure allows me to pick this up without
a re-review, I've just claimed onesixtyone in the pkgdb.
onesixtyone is a tiny SNMP tool that spews multiple simultaneous SNMP
requests and reports the results. It has been unloved since F12, but I use
it fairly frequently, it has no outstanding bugs and has been stable
upstream since 2002.
Having said that, I'm about to become upstream because I want a man page
and I've added the ability to quickly scan subnets without enumerating all
the IPs by hand.
When I've built it for devel, I'll pick up the other branches, including
Paul Flo Williams

Just curious, did anyone try Cairo with OpenGL backend under Fedora
(i.e. so that components that use Cairo, such as GTK+ etc. all use
OpenGL for rendering)? If so, what was the experience like?
