I just announce this on fedora-maintainers list with copy to the
concerned. All seem to be agree to rebuild their packages against this new
lib but we have some questions about this :
we tried to rebuild our packages (ushare and gmediaserver) for F-7 but the
build system does not see the new libupnp which is in update-testing. What
to do ?
Mail rel-eng and request that they tag the package accordingly. With
koji/bodhi and stable dist targets, only stable updates make it into the
buildroots by default. This is different than with the plague buildsys.
When we will be ready how to push all the packages at the same time ?
how to synchronize this with livna ?
Building a complete set of updates is a prerequisite to being able to push
all packages quickly.
Livna doesn't build against updates-testing, however, so making sure that
the packages do rebuild successfully as soon as the Fedora updates are
released would be important. That is, no surprises such as API breakage
and untested rebuilds.
Since different people push the packages, the maximum that can be done
is to keep the "broken deps" window short.
