I would like to draw some attention to this bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1622259. Description: startx unsets DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS, which result in launching another D-Bus session which breaks communicating with user systemd services (and any D-Bus services started before launching X) from X session via D-Bus, since they use two different D-Bus daemons. I would really like this bug to be fixed.
A few years ago, I packaged up glibc-arm-linux-gnu, so that Fedora could
have a packaged arm cross-toolchain that was useful (with glibc, it
cannot build anything in userspace). It worked for a while, but lately,
all builds have been failing with this error:
/usr/bin/arm-linux-gnu-ld: skipping incompatible
/usr/lib/gcc/arm-linux-gnueabi/8/libgcc_eh.a when searching for -lgcc_eh
I've looked at it and poked it quite a bit locally, but I can't seem to
get around that. I could really use some help to get this building
again, ideally, updated to 2.28.
All my work is committed to git, no help will be refused.
Thanks in advance,
sorry for a slightly off-topic post, but I've noticed that a significant
number of posters is sending HTML e-mail to this list (not to mention
top-replying), which generates unnecessary network traffic. Some people
pay for every bit downloaded, so they're paying for the same information
twice, because the e-mails are sent with multipart/alternative format,
which contains BOTH text/plain and text/html. One thing I noticed those
senders have in common is that they use Gmail.
So, a plea to Gmail users: please stop sending HTML e-mail to Fedora

There should be a science of discontent. People need hard times and
oppression to develop psychic muscles.

The message about Ceph  reminded me that we should probably make the
same notification for Eclipse Platform.
The Eclipse Platform upstream is in the process of dropping all support for
The current state is that upstream are no longer building for 32bit arches
upstream for 4.10 (release 2018-12) onwards. I expect them to start
actively removing 32bit specific code in future releases.
You can read more about the decision on the upstream bug 
In Fedora, Eclipse 4.10 which I am building for Rawhide and F29 right now,
still builds for 32bit arches, but this will not last long. I expect in a
future release (4.11 or later) Eclipse will no longer build on x86/arm and
at that time I will no longer be able to support these architectures in
Fedora -- I expect to exclude those arches from Fedora builds.
If you depend on the ECJ batch compiler, this will continue to be available
on all arches as a noarch package. (It is packaged as a discrete SRPM and
has no build or runtime dependency on the Eclipse Platform itself.)
There was a bug filed recently that indicated that printing was
broken on certain printers. As a result of that discussion, it became
apparent that there was no criteria for printing to work at all, which
seems like an oversight.
I discussed this briefly with Matthias Clasen this morning and he
agreed that this should be treated as blocking for Workstation.
I'd like to propose that we add the following criteria to Beta for Fedora 30+:
* Printing must work on at least one printer available to Fedora QA.
"Work" is defined as the output from the device matching a preview
shown on the GNOME print preview display. (Note that differences in
color reproduction are not considered "non-working".)
and this to Final for Fedora 30+:
* Printing must work on at least one printer using each of the
(I don't know which ones to specify here, but we ought to try to
figure out a cross-section that covers a large swath of our expected
At times this could be a requirement to track or know translation status of a package which has (just) built in koji.
Transtats could be used for this purpose. We just need to run a job.
1. Navigate to https://transtats-web-transtats.app.os.stg.fedoraproject.org/jobs/yml-based
2. Select 'Sync Package Build System' job template and proceed.
3. You may read and continue with the tasks defined in YML.
4. Select or enter package name. For example: anaconda.
Select Build System and Tag. For example: koji and rawhide
5. And run the job. Upon successful completion an unique URL will be created.
This could really be helpful. We are working on creating alerts or warnings.
