I have started to build GNOME 3.1.4 updates for F16 on Monday.
Unfortunately, the branching cut in right between me building a
soname-bumping cogl and everything that depends on it. I have now
established a side target, f16-gnome, for building interdependent
updates without the forced wait due to updates-testing. I think I got
all cogl dependencies in the desktop rebuilt, and have filed a bodhi
update with all those builds.
There is still more 3.1.4 updates to do, and I am going on vacation
tomorrow, so it would be great if other people (Richard, Tomas, Colin ?)
could chime in and get the remaining builds done.
Don't forget that
a) you must switch to the f16 branch in git
b) we have to file bodhi updates for all F16 builds now
c) you can use f16-gnome for building a set of updates (koji build --target f16-gnome ...), and then tag
them into f16-updates-candidate afterwards (koji tag-pkg f16-updates-candidate ...)
d) the alpha freeze is coming up next Tuesday
Thanks, and hope to see some of you in Berlin soon
This mail goes to desktop, spins, thomasj, subfusc
orphaned packages were recently announced on fedora-devel and that they
would be excluded from Fedora 16 if nobody is going to care about them.
That announcement also includes the packages for Enlightenment DR17 and
its dependencies of EFL.
Is there any potential packager out there who would like to take those
packages? I can't become a maintainer due to not having a sponsor yet.
But I am interested in becoming a co-maintainer.
I know of thomasj who maintained it in past. The user Subfusc noticed
that he would like to package E17 for Fedora.
Further then, I would like to see an Enlightenmint Spin :)
P.S. E17 is very awesome with the svn packages on ArchLinux :P
I accidentally clicked on "Don't show me these messages anymore" (or
whatever the string is) when I connected to a VPN. Now no messages
(success or errors) display when I connect to a VPN.
Is there a way to show the notifications again? I hunted through the
dconf-editor but didn't see a key that toggles the notification windows.
I Google'd around and didn't find anything either.
I just wanted to make the Desktop team aware of desktop-centric
packages that may be orphaned or unbuildable due to other orphaned
packages. Do we want to have orca, totem or abiword on the Desktop
spin? It would be a shame to have a desktop without a media player or
I'm not sure what the status of Abiword is--I don't recall whether it
is on the Desktop spin or not. Where would one go to find out what is
included in the spin?

Hey, Desktop Team,
What's the status of this?
I wondered how to set the default terminal in GNOME 3. The internet
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec <terminal>
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.default-applications.terminal exec-arg "'-e'"
This raises 2 questions:
1. Will it be possible to set the default terminal again in GNOME
2. Where is 'exec-arg' arg coming from? In the past we had the xml
files in /usr/share/gnome-control-center/default-apps/ which
contained an 'exec-flag'. How can I as a maintainer of several
terminal applications let people know the proper
