I'd like to take ownership of “maradns” package. It is a small DNS server, which
I do use. I'd like to update version in Fedora to 2.0 branch and continue maintaining it.
maradns was deprecated some time ago. In pkgdb I was able only to take F16 branch. What
should I do to get F18, too?

looks like PyXML package is deprecated since python itself provides xml
When you look deeper,
python's xml provides:
"dom", "parsers", "sax", "etree"
and PyXML provides:
'dom', 'marshal', 'parsers', 'sax', 'schema', 'utils', 'xpath', 'xslt'
So, PyXML duplicates dom, parsers and sax (and looks like python's is in
better shape). Is any package using marshall, schema or any other not in
Deprecate PyXML or just remove duplicated parts?
has requested boost static libraries be shipped as multilib so that they can
be used with "gcc -m32".
We historically haven't done this for anything besides glibc & libstdc++,
but there's nothing technically preventing us from changing the policy in
this manner. Opinions?
Seems as of f17, kde live image no longer has hunspell-en installed by
default anymore. I'm *guessing* it's due to comps-related changes dropping
<packagereq type="conditional" requires="hunspell">hunspell-en</packagereq>
in favor of yum-langpacks to handle it and that yum-langpacks doesn't get
used during spin creation.
Followup similar question is whether yum-langpacks gets used during non-live
anaconda installed either.
Anyway, what's the best way out of this mess? some options off the top of
1. hunspell re-add hard requirement on hunspell-en
2. comps: re-add conditionals
3. some other more awesome idea I can't think of...
p.s. same issue likely hits aspell too
A few important Fedora milestones reminders:
* Feature Submission deadline is *TODAY*, 2012-07-24 and you still
have a time to submit a new Feature proposal. Reminder: it has to be
in the ReadyForWrangler category, see .
* Feature Freeze is in two weeks from now, 2012-08-07. Please keep
in mind that it's the time when your feature has to be in *substantially
complete and in a testable state!* Check the Feature Freeze policy .
As we are already so far in the Fedora 18 development phase, please,
make sure to update your feature according to the current state -
completion percentage and the last update too. If you're *at risk* of not
making the Feature Freeze, please update your feature page accordingly
and let me know. The community can help a lot, communication is the
key. I've already contacted a few of you and expect more reminder emails
from me :) I'm constantly updating FeatureList according to your input
and approved features by FESCo.
You can check currently approved features  and see what's going
on in Fedora 18 lands.
Important note: the correct schedule is on Wiki , sorry for the
problems with generated TaskJuggler schedules and calendars. We
are working on fixing it with Robyn.

The axis2c package doesn't build against httpd 2.4, and since it is
effectively subsumed by one of wso2-wsf-cpp's sub-packages, wso2-axis2,
I think it would be better to just retire it. Nothing appears to depend
on that package, but if someone wants to take it for some reason then
please let me know so I can release ownership.
