Hi, my name is Thanos Apostolou and I am from Greece. I am studying Electrical and Computer Engineering in the National Technical University of Athens.
My linux experience, so far, is this:
I was using Ubuntu since 2012 and I was active in the askubuntu.com, where I was trying to help people solving problems, while expanding my knowledge at the same time.
Then I moved to arch based distros at 2016 where I settled with Manjaro. I learned there how to create PKGBUILDs.
I've been active on the Manjaro forum, I have been doing a few Pull Requests to Manjaro Github Repositories in order to improve/update certain packages.
I also maintain the Manjaro Lxde Community Edition.
Recently I decided to move to Fedora as it feels more "Professional" and higher quality distribution.
So, I believe that Fedora provides a better user experience.
Additionally, I will be able to improve my knowledge by learning Fedora's infrastructure.
However Fedora doesn't have the AUR and it's missing a lot of packages that I needed, so I learned how to create simple RPM packages and how to use COPR.
I've seen many users (especially youtubers) avoiding Fedora because of some missing packages and because it's not so user friendly.
So, my goal is to contribute to Fedora by creating some simple packages which I've seen many people ask for.
Because of my University's workload, I don't have much time in order to do more complex tasks, so in the beginning I want to make packages for some themes and some simple software (like compton).
When I get enough experience, in the future, I might get involved with some more difficult tasks.
For start, I have created this Review Request for vertex-theme which works good with the latest gtk versions and looks awesome with gtk Fedora spins: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1451298
= Proposed System Wide Change:Ruby on Rails 5.1 =
* Pavel Valena <pvalena AT redhat DOT com>
* Vít Ondruch <vondruch AT redhat DOT com>
* Jun Aruga <jaruga AT redhat DOT com>
Ruby on Rails 5.1 is the latest version of well known web framework
written in Ruby.
== Detailed Description ==
The Ruby on Rails stack is evolving quickly and Fedora needs to keep
pace with it. Therefore the whole Ruby on Rails stack should be
updated from 5.0 in Fedora 26 to 5.1 (latest version) in Fedora 27.
This will ensure that all the Ruby developers using Fedora have the
latest and greatest RPM-packaged Ruby on Rails.
== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
- The whole Rails stack has to be updated
- Some dependencies of the Rails stack will need update
- Packages need to be created/updated
- - rubygem-actioncable
- - rubygem-actionmaile
- - rubygem-actionpack
- - rubygem-actionview
- - rubygem-activejob
- - rubygem-activemodel
- - rubygem-activerecord
- - rubygem-activesupport
- - rubygem-rails
- - rubygem-railties
- - rubygem-arel
* Other developers:
Update Rails dependent packages to be working with Ruby on Rails 5.1
* Release engineering:
* List of deliverables:
* Policies and guidelines:

with the on-demand archives from common git hosting sites when preparing
a new pacemaker update, redownloading "spectool -s 0 pacemaker.spec"
of the original (-0.1.rc1, from 2 weeks ago) spec and comparing the
hashes, which (surprisingly to me) didn't match (they were at any similar
test in the past). Then I looked at the adiff output:

This likely means GitHub was internally updated to use equivalent
of git 2.11 feature of abbreviation length autoscaling within
last 14 days.
Hope this will be useful for some (e.g. fedora-review tool
has a check to redownload and diff sources against SRPM content,
fedora-review prints this in the ‘Issues’ section of the report:
‘- Package contains BR: python2-devel or python3-devel’
This has happened on a couple of reviews I have done recently. There
is no other information given about what this means or why it's bad.
Both were Python packages and the Python package guidelines mention
that you *should* have BR: python2-devel / python3-devel
So .. what does it mean?

You are kindly invited to the meeting:
Fedora 26 Beta Release Readiness Meeting on 2017-05-25 from 19:00:00 to 21:00:00 UTC
The meeting will be about:
We will meet to make sure we are coordinated and ready for the Beta
release of Fedora 26. Please note that this meeting is going to be
held even if the release is delayed at the Go/No-Go meeting on the
same day two hours earlier.
You are kindly invited to the meeting:
Fedora 26 Beta Go/No-Go Meeting on 2017-05-25 from 17:00:00 to 19:00:00 UTC
The meeting will be about:
Before each public release Development, QA and Release Engineering
meet to determine if the release criteria are met for a particular
release. This meeting is called the Go/No-Go Meeting. Verifying that
the Release criteria are met is the responsibility of the QA Team.
Release Candidate (RC) availability and good QA coverage are
prerequisites for the Go/No-Go meeting. If you have any bug on the
list, please help us with Beta release. If we won't be ready by
Thursday, we will use this meeting to review blockers and decide what
I am trying to use Skia static library in my system. The problem is it
depends on libglvnd.

I did check the GLX package comes with fedora :
[navid@workstation skia]$ readelf -s /usr/lib64/libGL.so.1 | grep
664: 0000000000041460 19 FUNC GLOBAL DEFAULT 11 glXGetCurrentContext
It seems it does provide this function. But there is something wrong with it.
Although I fixed my problem with compiling libglvnd from upstream and
installing it myself. But I think it would be great if somebody more
familiar with these libraries can look at this problem and fix if
there is something wrong with this package in fedora.
Hi Devel list!
In case you weren't aware Flock CFP is open! Please start thinking
about your submissions and registration now. The focus this year
should be "do-ing", so there is a general preference for hackfests and
workshops. The Flock committee will send more details on the kind of
submissions they are looking for ASAP, but if you already have an idea
in mind submit it today!
