I would like to retire loki-lib.
It's a C++ library that hasn't been updated in nearly 10 years. It FTBS for
some releases (circa F23)
Repoquery says that nothing in Fedora depends on it.
Outage: db-qa server - 2018-06-07 23:00 UTC
There will be an outage starting at 2018-06-07 23:00 UTC, which will last
approximately 4 hours.
To convert UTC to your local time, take a look at
date -d '2018-06-07 23:00 UTC'
Reason for outage:
Currently the database server on the fedora qa network has only 2 CPUs
and limited ram. This is causing problems with waiverdb/resultsdb and
other tools needing to get builds in place. The databaseserver will be
moved to a different virtual server and given 8 additional cpus and

I am making some headway improving the Fedora look in the Mac firmware picker on Retina screens.
1. Providing retina scaled text
The text (as an image) is provided by fedora-logos and linked into /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/.disk_label by mactel-boot. To support retina screens a double scale one should be provided.
I cannot see a README about how the current bootloader/fedora.vol file was created. I have managed to make one with grub2 tools and DeJavu Mono but perhaps it was made with another method? Would fedora-logos take a pull request to add a fedora_2x.vol and fedora.vol.contentDetails file? Would it be preferred to be made with Linux tools (maybe even in the Makefile) or just made in macOS and copied to the git?
I cannot find an official upstream repo for mactel-boot. I have the source from the SRPM though and could provide a patch. Not sure where to send it.
2. Providing retina scaled images (fedora-logos again)
This is also something I am working on. I will have a patch for fedora-logos at some point. Currently a utility from libicns is used. At the current release version it doesn't support retina images, but in the master branch they have another tool that should work. However, they haven't done a release for years (I have requested one). This file is made in the Makefile so I think it is best if we continue to render this file in the Makefile. Is this something fedora-logos would take a pull req for? Would fedora-logos be happy with a custom c++ or python util which would assemble the icns file (using imagemagick as currently for the image conversion) if libicns is non responsive?
When I try to fork rpms/thrift, I get the error message: Repo
"forks/ctubbsii/thrift" already exists.
However, it clearly does not exist. It is not listed at
https://src.fedoraproject.org/user/ctubbsii , which shows 0 forks.
Perhaps I forked it in the past, and the delete did not get cleaned up
correctly? I don't know.
