I have no desire to become a package maintainer for Enlightenment, but I
went through the exercise of repackaging enlightenment, efl, elementary,
emotion-generic-players, evas-generic-loaders, efl-python, econnman,
terminology, and enventor into packages matching the existing Fedora 20
All of the EFL subpackages now ship in a single tarball and sort-of
depend on each other, so I built a single spec file for it that creates
the following subpackages. Each matches as best as possible the existing
Fedora 20 RPMs. It creates the following binary RPMS:
efl: A metapackage that pulls in all of the efl libraries
efl-devel: Contains EFL documentation in HTML form, and Efl_Config.h
that all of the rest of the -devel packages depend on
ephysics: New, depends on bullet-devel
eldbus: New, obsoletes e_dbus
Then some more new packages: efl-python, implementing the python
bindings to the efl, emotion-generic-players more players implemented by
vlc, enventor, a program for creating/modifying Enlightenment themes,
econnman, a front-end for connman, depends on connman and efl-python.
Everything else had an existing package, just updated the source.
This makes for a for far more usable Enlightenment desktop than
currently shipped with Fedora 20 (switching to the opengl compositor
doesn't cause black terminology windows for example), and figured I'd
share what I did rather than sit on it. Feel free to change attributions
in the changelog if you decide to use it.
I've just updated libwebp in rawhide, which involves a soname bump.
I'll take care of python-pillow.
I have several issues wth Fedora 20. Not bugs but shortcomings in the installer or packages who _must_ be in the DVD or default installations and aren't.
Is that the place for submitting them?
Is anyone interested in taking on python-boto, please?

Subject: [pkgdb] python-boto ownership changed
Date: Thu, 26 Dec 2013 00:19:48 +0000
From: Fedora PackageDB <pkgdb(a)fedoraproject.org>
Package python-boto in Fedora 18 was orphaned by robert
To make changes to this package see:
I unretired the el6 branch and took ownership for a package I maintain.
Now I'm getting the $subject build error when I do a fedpkg build.
Scratch builds are successful.
Is there some built-in delay between unretiring before I can do builds
or is there another step I've missed (and don't find any mention of.)
