Yes I've been doing chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf for a very long time.
However in the case of /etc/nsswitch.conf, changing it (with the
cooperation of glibc of course) to be a symlink seems reasonable.
What I'm (still) missing is what's the actual plan? What should
things look like?

If F31 is delayed by 6 months and F30 is supported for 6 months longer,
does it mean F29 *also* automatically gets a longer cycle since it by
policy becomes EOL when F31 is out + 1 month?
Can we EOL F29 6 months before F31 is out to not have *two* long term
branches to maintain?
My name is Dillen and I'm a developer from the Netherlands. I recently
switched from ArchLinux to Fedora and currently figuring out how
packaging for Fedora works. I mostly worked on commercial projects the past couple of years but I'd like to contribute more to open-source projects like Fedora.
The first thing I'm "working" on is updating a package that is
outdated. It also has a new dependency so that's my first contribution
review request (see:
I am facing a weird problem with creating a new user account:
Create a new user:
# adduser -m tester
Trying to change his passwd:
# passwd tester
Changing password for user tester.
At this point, passwd hangs and doesn't do anything.
I am not getting the "usual" passwd-prompt.
What's going on here?
Upstream has just released 2.0 RC1 and I'm working on test builds. I don't
expect much to change at this point as they run master in production so
it's pretty stable.
It is a SONAME bump so once the 2.0 GA release happens I plan to update
Rawhide only at this time and rebuild dependencies unless there's a need
for it to land in F29.
There are several packages that will need to be rebuilt but I believe
Blender is the biggest consumer of OIIO for the Cycles rendering engine.
