My name is Sebastian Dyroff. I am from Germany, Berlin. I've just
finished my studies of computer science.
I am a Linux user for a decade or so and tried a lot of different
Distros. For a long time I used gentoo (don't know if it is a good idea
to tell here:-) ), but switched to Fedora a while ago.
I really would like to see wiki2beamer (Bug 851891) included in fedora,
an thought i should try to build a rpm for the package. It converts
wiki-like syntax to latex beamer syntax and is written in python.
Currently I need to get some feedback, to get the spec-file meet the
I also built a rpm for lprof (Bug 851641), a colour management profiler,
but upstream seems dead and there are some problems that might prevent
that the package will be part of Fedora. But if someone wants that
package included and is willing to help me fixing the issues or at least
points me in the right direction I would continue to work on this.
Join us on irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting for this important
meeting, wherein we shall determine the readiness of the Fedora 18 Alpha.
As previously announced last week, we moved Go/No-Go to Thursday.
Thursday, August 30, 2012 @21:00 UTC (17:00 EDT/14:00 PDT/23:00 CEST)
"Before each public release Development, QA and Release Engineering meet

I'm orphaning privoxy as I'm not using anymore and need to focus on secondary archs.
AFAIK it isn't required by any other packages, but needs to be updated to the latest
version if someone decides to pick it up.
The update to guile-2.x has been blocked for almost 1.5 years now:
Long story short, existing programs are not ready to use guile-2.x, while newer
versions of aiselriot (part of GNOME) need it. Creating a compat-guile or a
guile2 package can be one way forward.
What do you think? Would be good to get this resolved finally.
If you break down the amazement with some simple rules it's only
disappointment which is underneath. -- Vivek Shah
