Quite a few people are going to be installing Fedora 22 in the coming
days, searching for things in the software center and not finding
their esoteric GUI tool. This is because some applications still don’t
ship AppData files, which have become compulsory in the workstation
spin for this release. Luckily, the vast majority of applications that
don't include AppData are not popular and most have little-to-no
If you want to check an application without installing F22 you can use
this link http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/screenshots/f22/matrix.html
-- if you fix an application I'll be regenerating that status page
every 48 hours and shipping new a metadata release in a couple of
is there any mechanism how to speed up release of critical security
fixes by Fedora update system?
For instance Firefox packages are released *week* after official Mozilla
release which is really bad.
Any idea here?
Fedora infrastructure is trying to reach the FAS user vicodan. The email address
listed in FAS for this user does not correspond to a bugzilla account, while
this user is a packager.
We have been trying to contact him via the hotmail address set in FAS, but
Does someone know how to contact viciodan?
If so, could you ask him to check his emails or basically do either of:
a) change the email of his bugzilla account to use the same email as in FAS
b) change the email of his FAS account to use the same email as his bugzilla
c) create a new bugzilla account corresponding to this FAS email
Thanks in advance for your help,
I am trying to get into packaging and now I have the perfect
opportunity to adopt a package - ddclient.
I know that a lot of us, that cannot afford static IP addresses but
like to tinker with home servers and new technology, really love this
little piece of software.
Now, the situation here is a bit tricky as the package is not (quite)
orphaned (and I would like it to stay that way) so I cannot adopt it;
and its owner doesn't want to maintain it anymore, so I cannot co
-maintain. To make it even worse, even if he wanted to sponsor me as a
"co-maintainer", he is not a sponsor :)
Can someone point me in the right direction to start packaging this
program. I read and understood wiki pages about packaging, naming,
licensing, responsibilities, ... I have built a lot of rpms for my own
purposes and have one package ready for review on rpmfusion; so I am
not completely clueless here :)
Thank you for your guidance!

for quite a while, I've been working on implementation of a new, revamped
UI, designed by Jakub Steiner for the LiveUSB Creator . Currently, me
and Luke are slowly moving to merge the changes back into the master
branch of the tree. Some stuff is not done, like descriptions of the
images or final look of the icons but the really important things are
I'm writing here to ask you guys for input on what you think about how it
looks like now. I've set up a Copr repository  and put a Windows
package together .
I'm open to all kinds of feature requests, bug reports, any kind of input
that comes to your minds.
The Copr version still contains just udisks support. Udisks2 will be added
ASAP (when I rebase my branch against master and build the package again).
Specifically, what we'd love to settle is: what to do with the main screen
with the three promoted images. Obviously, putting a Server or Cloud
Product on a USB drive is a nonsense. One could argue the tool at least
downloads the images for you, though.
I've got the misfortune of maintaining a small number of systems that use
the cx18 driver for their HVR-1600 cards; I'm just in the process of
bringing these systems up to Fedora 21, and have discovered that
cx18-firmware was retired.
As I'm going to have to maintain the package for work purposes, I'm
volunteering to maintain it in Fedora for F21 and later. If anyone's
interested in having it available in Fedora, the review request is at:
