I am a firm believer in the Pottery Barn rule. You break it you buy
it. If you feel this is important enough of a security fix to break ui
then push it as an update, as long as you take point on unwinding the
Well, I don't use it, I just wanted to provide the security update.
If you don't think it's worth pushing as a maintainer due to the
breakage, I can move it back to testing.
F18 will have it out of the box regardless.
The other thing to note is that for anyone who uses the revelation
file across multiple systems, once you upgrade to this version your
other system with the older revelation can't open the file any more.
An additional wrinkle I don't think anyone has considered. People
trying to use revelation out of the box for F18 and then using that
file on another linux distribution is going to be for a big surprise.
See any other desktop oriented distros moving to the new version in
their latest or upcoming releases? Revelation upstream was
effectively dead for so long, I doubt many people have noticed it was
forked and given a new upstream hope... or even noticed the encryption
weakness when it was announced.
