Heads up! I'm going to upgrade Wireshark up to 1.10.x in Fedora 18

Hello All!

There are *lots* of CVEs against Wireshark shipped with Fedora 18
(quite old 1.8.8 version).

* https://bugzilla.redhat.com/965942
* https://bugzilla.redhat.com/972762
* https://bugzilla.redhat.com/990189

In order to fix them and not to add additional work for the
maintainers I'm thinking of upgrading up to 1.10.2 from 1.8.x.

Instead of backporting stuff let's build the latest stable! I'm sure
users will love this, since new Wireshark adds a lot of new features
and fixes all these CVEs.

With best regards, Peter Lemenkov.
