Some time back there was discussion of being able to rollback yum updates via
btrfs snapshotting. As I recall, it turned out that the default btrfs install
was not setup correctly to make this feasible (I had briefly tested it on my
machine). I haven't heard anything since - this seems like a great idea.

currently default error policy for printers in Fedora is "Stop printer" on
any error which is a really bad default. I have run across this issue LOTS
of times with regular Fedora desktop users who don't get why has their
printer stopped working, there is no UI queue to warn users, there is no
easy way to "Start printer" with one click after it has been stopped. It is
just a big mess.
Even worse, previous versions of Gnome control panel (if I remember
correctly) had option to change default error policy, now that option is
removed and you can get to it only by installing system-config-printers
tool, something regular users have no idea about even exists, and it is not
installed by default.
There are too many examples which are simple user errors but result in
priner going offline (stopped) and this is really bad, because after any
small error users can't print any more.
For example: user trying to print while he/she is not at home so his/hers
printer is not available, user trying to print but has forgot to connect
usb priner cable, user trying to print but haven't turned it on, user
printing to wifi printer but while connected to different wifi network...
Any of these actions is simple uses error but results in permanently
disabling of priner (Stops printer) and users can't print even when they
resolve issue that was stopping them from accessing the printer.
Now Fedora is what is stopping them from printing.
Who is responsible for user experience of Fedora desktop? To whom should I
point this issue to?

Mozilla's official Firefox build will enforce addons to contain a Mozilla signature
without any runtime option to disable the check.
Initially this prevents Fedora packaged addons since they are unsigned. The Mozilla
signing process takes time and can't be part of a package building process.
Is Fedora going to get authorization to build Firefox with a runtime disable option?
I would like to build lilypond for EPEL-7, but unfortunately it
requires texlive-metapost which we don't have in the RHEL-7
texlive. Now, the question is how to build just one subpackage
(or any required other subpackages) from the monstrosity which
the current texlive? Anybody any suggestions?

I've got the misfortune of maintaining a small number of systems that use
the cx18 driver for their HVR-1600 cards; I'm just in the process of
bringing these systems up to Fedora 21, and have discovered that
cx18-firmware was retired.
As I'm going to have to maintain the package for work purposes, I'm
volunteering to maintain it in Fedora for F21 and later. If anyone's
interested in having it available in Fedora, the review request is at:
The recently released libgdata-0.17.1 has bumped its soname. The
highlights are support for version 3 of the YouTube API, and an
initial port to version 2 of the Drive API.
This is only for rawhide. I will be rebuilding affected packages.
as some already might have noticed, Coin3 is about to land in Fedora.
Therefore, I rebuilt SIMVoleon and SoQt (two addon-packages to Coin),
against Coin3 on rawhide and f22. I do not expect this to impose
problems to Fedora, because I can't spot any packages depending on these
On Fedora <= 21 these packages will have to stay with Coin2 to avoid
Though it's thinkable to do so, I do not plan to provide Coin3-compiled
versions of these packages for fc20, f21 and Coin2-compiled versions for
fc22, f23, at the moment. Please speak up now, should you have such a
I am writing patch for system-config-users that allows configure users ang group from a IPA server with python library ipalib from package ipa-python. I would like the changes be included in the system-config-users. What is the best way to implement this from the point of view of architecture? I am now implementing API that is similar to API of libuser.
