A while ago, I updated bluez-libs to the new 3.x version, since it
new soname and I wanted to make sure anything using it got rebuilt
against the new version.
The plan was to update bluez-utils and replace the horrid bluez-pin
package with the shiny new bluez-gnome, but other things (mostly OLPC
hardware bringup) have been taking priority.
I've now found the time to do the bluez stuff, and have set it up for
testing -- I appreciate that it's fairly late to be doing this, but I'd
like to do the minor update of bluez-libs to 3.6, along with the update
of bluez-utils from its ancient 2.25 version to 3.6. That will require
building bluez-gnome in place of bluez-pin, too.
Yes, it's far later than I'd like to be doing this, but the alternative
is that we end up swapping them out _later_ in an erratum, which is
_far_ more likely to be problematic. I've can make some time now to do a
proper test of bluez stuff in advance of the fc6 release, and in fact I
have a strong suspicion that after what I've done today, the new
packages have probably had _more_ testing than the old ones in rawhide.
Hands up those who've actually done any testing of bluetooth stuff in
I've got packages just about ready to go; I'm still working on testing
the stuff which is _known_ to be broken in rawhide but which shouldn't
be broken with the new packages. I'd like to put them into FC6.
As for testing bluetooth on devel? Me..... works great with my BT 2
dongle and the one built into my laptop. But I would love the newer
stuff. It also has other nice stuff like dbus integration. So I can
test it too. Once its in can the gnokii in extras-devel be pinged so
its rebuilt too?
