If you check the 'comps' module in package CVS, you'll see the new file
comps.rng. This is a RELAX NG schema for validating the grammar of
our comps.xml files.
We're hoping to rig this up to the CVS checkin procedure to ensure that
all changes result in valid comps files. We're also going to use it as
part of the daily acceptance testing for Rawhide.
Nicolas Mailhot gets all the thanks for writing the schema - I just
checked it into CVS.
If anyone would care to comment on the undocumented parts of comps -
especially what the heck metapkg is for and whether we need it - it
would be greatly appreciated.
3 Look for <a:documentation> tagged items in comps.rng to see what's
documented so far.
I am trying to help get some voice recordings for the Asterisk PBX into
Fedora. These support features like voicemail and an echo test.
Unfortunately, the audio files are not released with a clear license. As
far as I know, the woman who made the recordings does not want the
recordings used for commercial purposes. However, I am still looking for
this in writing. Does anyone know of a clear statement on this matter from
the copyright holder?
There is an alternative recording available at
However, I don't know if the license would be acceptable to Fedora. Would
someone review this license?
For reference, please see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=428832.
The last week I've had bugs filed twice against packages I maintain because
their dependencies had broken, and this is not with rawhide but in F-9 and F-8 !!
One of these 2 breakages was due to a php version bump for security reasons,
and I can live with that. One kind request to Joe Orton (in the CC) though,
next time if you have the time please remember that maniadrive has a full
versioned dependency on php and will break with each upstream version change.
All my packages are wide open so next time please feel free to rebuild
maniadrive and include it in the update.
The other dependency breakage though is due to rddtool (which also included a
shared libary) being updated from a release candidate to the final, and this
change includes a soname change. This is not acceptable in a released version
unless there is a _really_ _really_ good reason, and even if there is a really_
_really_ good reason this should have been coordinated with any dependend packages.
Perhaps we can add a dependency check in bodhi, or if that slows bodhi down to
much atleast run the dep-checking script currently run on rawhide also on "F-x
+ upodates + updates-testing", running the dep-checking script on "F-x +
upodates + updates-testing" would have caught both these dep breakages as both
packages have gone through testing first.
Then any broken deps should be mailed to the maintainers of the involved
packages and to rel-eng, which then should block (or completely reject) non
critical updates until the deps are solved.
I'm trying to start up evolution and all I seem to get are the following back
[paul@t7 ~]$ evolution
CalDAV Eplugin starting up ...
** (evolution:4765) : DEBUG: mailto URL command: evolution %s
** (evolution>7465) : DEBUG: mailto URL program: evolution
GLib-ERROR **: gmem.c:136: failed to allocate 31740376080 bytes
I'm not sure why it's trying to allocate such a huge amount of memory either.
