Plus, release 0.89 from 20-May-2011 is available whereas Fedora contains
0.84 from 2010 ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/courier/files/cone/ ).
This looks like somebody with interest in Cone should sign up as
co-maintainer and find out what's up with the current maintainer.

With Best Regards,
Just a friendly reminder: If you are a Fedora account system account
holder, and haven't changed your password and uploaded a new ssh key
since we announced the mandatory change, you best do so NOW. The
deadline is 2011-11-30 (only 2 days away).
If you don't, you may no longer have access to groups you currently do
(like packager, or sysadmin or ambassador).
Go take a few minutes, read the announcement and security information
linked to it, and change your password and upload a new ssh public key.
If you aren't a Fedora contributor, the information linked in our
announcement is still a great read and may just help you be more secure
on your machines. :)

The way we currently install Eclipse plugins in Fedora is incorrect and
RPM places all the plugin artifacts in the proper directories. However
that does not update the eclipse metadata. This means that until the
next time eclipse starts it is unaware of the newly installed plugins.
Because the user would normally run Eclipse not as root Eclipse does not
have permission to write to the meta data files located in the
installation directory. It therefore creates a parallel version in the
user's home directory ~/.eclipse. This creates a fragile installation
and leads to a whole host of problems.
To improve this I have written apatch which runs the Eclipse reconciler
during rpm installation. The Eclipse reconciler is an Eclipse
application which goes through and checks the installation directories
and updates the eclipse metadata with any newly installed plugins.
To add support for this in your eclipse package you have to add the
following line to your rpm spec file:
%_eclipse_pkg [package name]
Here is an example from the eclipse-rse spec file for the
The above macro expands to the following:
if [ $1 == 0 ]; then
I apologize if you have experienced instability in Eclipse installations
on rawhide, it is probably due to these changes. Please let me know if
you have any comments questions or suggestions.
I will be filing a request to update the Eclipse packaging guidelines.
If you are interested in the details of the work, here is a summary in
the form of a patch: http://fpaste.org/pPEC/
Have anyone here tried to compile cisco vpn for Fedora 16 - 32 or 64 bit?
I need it sometimes and it should support ipsec over tcp, unfortunately nothing in unix can provide it.
Thanks for suggestions.
I was looking for a way to check abi compatibility for a package I
maintain that does not control API/ABI compatibility and found this:
I already have it packaged for my own use so I thought I'd check to
see if anyone else is interested in it, and if so, if someone will
want to review it.
PHP 5.4 enter RC stage
So, I'm working to upgrade all the PHP stack
(for now in my testing repo)
I think PHP 5.4.0 (finale/stable) will be available for fedora 17, so I
plan to update it (and all C extension before fedora 17 feature freeze)
Do you think I should submit a feature proposal ?
Of course this will requires to test all web app. available in the
