Yet again, Fedora Electronic Lab wants to be part of the huge feature
list of Fedora's next release.
Though, I believe everyone is familiar to FEL, I would welcome
everyone to have a look at its feature page:
Thereby, I'm requesting Fedora Advisory Board's approval to use Fedora
Trademark on the FEL spin (based on F10 Cambridge).
The kickstart file (for the FEL's livedvd) can be found on the fedora
hosted git repositories. Unfortunately, I can't access that url right
now. But I assume you can find it easily :)
Is there any particular reason why xcircuit in the repos are 3.4.x
series while the upstream has released 3.6.x series which has much
much better stability and functionality?
I am trying to help out with the Features Page update required for
Approval of Electronic spin. I remember a discussion sometime back
regarding moving from LiveCD to LiveDVD and addition of new software
packages. If someone could provide me such a list of additional
packages or the kickstart file, I can update the #Packages section of
Also, do we have an update FEL_flyer ? Especially the last page of the
current flyer  needs quite an update with the Technical support and
mailing list detail updates.
Thanks and Regards,
I think this is an important mail to follow up.

Whoever volunteered to do the developer spin should take care of this.
you are lacking Feature Pages, and are therefore not yet approved by
Release Engineering to be composed for the Beta.
Create your feature pages and drop a note on both the fedora-spins
mailing list, as well as the fedora-advisory-board for trademark
approval, after which you can continue to move to the rel-eng mailing
list at lists.fedoraproject.org to get your final approval.
Most appropriate would be to do so in advance of the Beta Feature
Freeze, coming up August 19th.

Can someone please build xcircuit on KDE and check whether the crash
happens? The entire thread can be found in link 1.
It refers to a bug reported in Launchpad on Ubuntu and as Chitlesh
mentioned before "a blocker" :P for the latest upstream version to
enter the Fedora repos.
Thanks in Advance.

Yes, that's certainly significant. However, I cannot get the program
to crash on my computer, and I can't figure out the sequence of events
leading up to the crash. The program crashes when the mouse motion
event handler is called. Apparently at that time, the memory location
of the wire has become invalid, even though the startcatalog() routine
has not yet been called.
This is probably due to the window manager making X event calls, which
may happen differently on your system than on mine. Tomorrow when I
get my desktop computer back, I will try to reproduce the error under
the gnome desktop, and see if that makes a difference. It may be
necessary to force cancellation of mouse motion event handler callbacks
in a different place.
I'll let you know tomorrow or Tuesday if I can reproduce the crash on
any computer that I have available.

Toped 0.9.0 is in Fedora Repositories.

Your workaround did the job. Congratulations :)
Hello Release engineers,
As the CC: maintainer of gspiceui, I'm requesting the deletion (as
soon as possible) of gspiceui-0.9.65-2.fc10.ppc64 in PPC64, because
it's dependency gwave is not present for the PPC64 arch.
