submission rate limit advice

I've tightened or rather overtightened several postfix limits, in what
seemed like a good idea at the time...

noticed now this warning, this user is on a dynamic IP, so can't add his
IP to exception:

going by the counter "Connection rate limit exceeded: 125", what values
should I alter?

First cut of Rust bindings to libmilter available


I’ve published a first cut of Rust bindings to libmilter:

<a href="" title=""></a>

You might find this interesting if the thought of writing milters in the
Rust language appeals to you. This library doesn’t provide anything new,
it just makes libmilter usable from Rust.

I have not yet blessed the current state as ‘released’, so if you want
to come help shape the design, everything is still malleable. Also if
you want to participate or give feedback in any other form, you are
welcome at the library’s repository:

Thank you,

Performance penalties caused by -D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS


(CC'd Florian, who was the change owner)


-D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS was added to the default build flags in F28[1].
For one of my packages, upstream reports that this results in a 25% slow
down[2], which is quite a lot.

Has anyone else noticed such performance deterioration as a result of this?

The change page says "This turns on cheap range checks for C++ arrays,
vectors, and strings.", but maybe they aren't cheap enough and are worth

404 error - locationmatch and proxypassmatch with parentheses in URL


We have observed the following error. If a URL contains parentheses, and is matched by LocationMatch that sends to ProxyPassMatch, the backend doesn't receive request and Apache returns 404 error.

<LocationMatch (.*)>
ProxyPassMatch ""

This URL should work, but doesn't-

If the parentheses are in the query string it works as expected.

Is there a different regex needed to match parentheses in URL?

Fedora Koji and unreliable IPv6 test

We have some IPv6 tests which basically start a server listening on

Fedora Koji.

Regarding Adam Miller (maxamillion) packager status

I had a short email conversation with Adam and he doesn't have time to
maintain any his packages anymore. I don't know how to tell which packages
he's main admin on but he on 391 packages overall.

He did point out a problem and I'm not sure what the solution is. Without
old pkgdb, how does one mass remove themselves from packages?

I volunteer to take txt2man as I need it for a few of my packages.

moving bugzilla overrides to dist-git


We are currently working on getting rid of the git repo at
fedora-scm-requests [1] which is nowadays only used to store the
overrides of the default assignee in bugzilla (for example to allow
different default assignee for Fedora and EPEL).

I am working on porting this mechanism to dist-git itself (much like we
did for the anitya integration a few weeks ago).

 We are thinking on providing a simple text field to submit FAS
username or email to override the default assignee, the big question is
then, who should be allowed to update this field ?

Should the main admin be able to set

dkim: FAILED Author+Sender+MailFrom signature by, From: <>, a=rsa-sha256, c=relaxed/relaxed, s=20161025,, invalid (public key: DNS error: no nameservers)

Dear, I've a Postfix server where I've implemented DKIM for incoming mails.

While receiving mails, I'm seeing the /var/log/zimbra.log file and I can
see a type of error as in below case corresponds to a mail sent from Gmail
to my Zimbra account:

dkim: FAILED Author+Sender+MailFrom signature by, From: <
... at gmail dot com>, a=rsa-sha256, c=relaxed/relaxed, s=20161025, i=@, invalid (public key: DNS error: no nameservers)

I confirm that in my Postfix server I have DNS resolution.

What can be the problem ?

PHP handler for .html files - C7

Morning all,

I am finally moving some old (F9 thru F17) servers to C7 (Plus PHP7/Pgsql10) boxes. On the old boxes they all had it set so that .htm and .html files were handled by PHP in addition to the normal .php files.

This was done with the simple change to:

AddHandler php5-script .php .htm .html
AddType text/html .php .htm .html

in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ I did the same on my first new server but found that this did not work, and the login.html did not get handled.

KDE Itinerary in kdereview


KDE Itinerary has been moved to kdereview:

KDE Itinerary is a Kirigami-based mobile application for managing your
itinerary as a timeline, including access to your travel documents, tickets
and boarding passes, real-time updates for train connections, weather forecast
along your trip, etc.

Its destination for now is probably extragear/pim, but becoming part of the

Roundcube does not show emails


I installed Roundcube 1.4.1 on a sandbox server running CentOS 7, Postfix and
Dovecot, with half a dozen test email accounts.

Mail is setup correctly under the hood, e. g. I can access any account via
Thunderbird for sending and receiving mail.

And SELinux is set to permissive until everything works correctly.

I took some notes (in french) on the installation procedure under CentOS :

* <a href="" title=""></a>

All tests in the installer (including SMTP and IMAP login) are OK.

But still, when I login to an account, no emails are showing.

Simplenote and multiple windows

I am not sure whether this is a Simplenote or Ubuntu issue. I have
installed it (using the snap, but also tried
Simplenote-linux-1.12.0-amd64.deb from and it works
fine except for that fact that I cannot open more than one window at a
time, so I can only see one note at a time. Right clicking on the
launcher and clicking New Window just takes me to the already open
one. I am using Ubuntu (Gnome) 19.10 but I seem the same issue on

Any suggestions?


Self Introduction: Dakota Williams

Hi all!

I'm working on bringing cutelyst to Fedora for my personal project.
Formally, I'm a C/C++ developer, but have a strong interest in RPM

I've had some packaging experience through work by backporting glib2,
udisks2, and libmount to el6, as well as making pamixer and playerctl
openSUSE packages. I've also authored a patch to gnutls30 in el6[1][2]
to fix usage with libidn2.

Postfix SNI / Letsencrypt

Hi all,

I'm trying to make work the SNI feature from postfix >3.4.

I've declared a "smtpd_tls_chain_files" using letsencrypt certificates
(privkey and fullchain), and a "tls_server_sni_maps" using hash file,
according the documentation online.

The doc says
"The chain files MUST start with the private key,
# with the certificate chain next, starting with the leaf
# (server) certificate, and then the issuer certificates."

I tried differents ways on the sni file, but every time I try with
openssl to test the configuration I got on postfix logs:

Updating firefox after a long time yum-excluded it and having installed it from .rpm


I've been stuck for a while with an old version of firefox, installed
from local .rpm (I know.. I should have downgraded using yum, instead)
and added a exclude=firefox to the relevant .repo file. I did that
after a yum-update has brought firefox 52+, and all add-ons were
deprecated because of their new add-on scheme.

Today that all the add-ons I need are available, I've tried upgrading
to the latest Firefox version available from the updates repo.. I
removed the exclude line in .repo file, but `yum update` didn't bring any
firefox version at all: "No packages marked for update".

Relay and Sender Restrictions


I have a destination and a relay postfix. Both have the following (with
a few extra for the destination):

smtpd_sender_restrictions = reject_non_fqdn_sender, reject_unknown_sender_domain, permit

The destination rejects emails as it is supposed to, however the relay does
not. This means that the destination rejects emails from the relay.

How can I configure the relay to reject emails (non fqdn, unknown
domain) so that they never reach the destination?

I need the relay because the destination is down quite a bit.


How do I tell what's loading all these snap filesystems?

I've recently upgraded one of my systems to [x]ubuntu 19.10.

I know this pulls in chromium as a snap package and that there's no
alternative but there seem to be quite a lot of snap filesystems on my
system now. Are *all* of these a consequence of chromium or is
something else using snap that I don't know about?

No kernel package on Fedora Rawhide ppc64le?

<a href="" title=""></a>

DEBUG No matching package to install: 'kernel'

I can see that ppc64le was temporarily added to nobuildarches in
kernel.spec, and then removed. However there is no explanation in
git, and there was no successful build since then.

What I also don't understand is why the older or F31 ppc64le kernel
package isn't inherited into the buildroot on ppc64le.


Pymol is broken on Fedora 31

Pymol is a package that, integrated with python-rdkit and other python packages, makes the lives of people working with drug discovery (and chemistry in general too) much easier. Unfortunately, the package is broken and not even build into F31. The maintainer has not replied to a BZ ticket open months ago.[1]
At this point, the absence of the package is realy making an impact in science made with Fedora.

CentOS 8 Ruby Modules

Hey there,

Is there any method to install the modules from
<a href="" title=""></a>

I can't download from koji and I want to test some issues that I am
seeing with our ruby app on a different ruby version on CentOS 8.

Is there any way I can get access to theses or are there any plans to
enable more Appstreams for ruby on CentOS 8?


Heads up: rdma-core dropped support for 32-bit arm

rdma-core 26.1-1.fc32 dropped support for %arm:

# 32-bit arm is missing required arch-specific memory barriers,
ExcludeArch: %{arm}

This broke dependecies for the arm package of openmpi

This may have affected other users of rdma-core, depending of if they
use rdma on arm.

# Fedora Quality Assurance Meeting
# Date: 2019-12-09
# Time: 16:00 UTC
(<a href="" title=""></a>)
# Location: #fedora-meeting on

Greetings testers!

We have a couple of active proposals to discuss, so let's get together
on Monday and check in.

If anyone has any other items for the agenda, please reply to this
email and suggest them! Thanks.

== Proposed Agenda Topics ==

1. Previous meeting follow-up
2. Proposed asynchronous blocker review process
3. Proposed disk unmount test case
4. F31 eclipse module default stream / protobuf issue

modular protobuf issue (Dec. 6, 2019) recap

## How to determine if you have an issue and how to fix it:

run: ```sudo dnf list --installed *protobuf*```
if you get a result that looks like
```protobuf.x86_64 3.6.1-6.module_f31+6793+1c93c38```

you have encountered the problem. so please:

run: ```sudo dnf module disable eclipse```
run: ```sudo dnf downgrade protobuf```

Any updates, as of a few hours ago, should be fine.

## What happened:
First and foremost, this issue appears to be caused by Modularity but, in
fact, is just an example of a policy not being followed.

Submitting Grantlee as a KF5 Framework


I have been developing Grantlee for over 10 years with contributions
from a community of others mostly connected with KDE.

<a href="" title=""></a>

I have not been able to maintain a reasonable release cadence of
Grantlee in the last few years (last release 3 years ago), so I'm
submitting Grantlee to KDE Review with the aim of addition to KDE

Grantlee consists of two libraries,

* Grantlee::Templates is a text-template system based on Qt introspection
* Grantlee::TextDocument is a builder design pattern implementation for
processing QTextDocuments


Working fedora-active-user script?

First, done anyone have a working version of the script? Google returns the
github page which hasn't been updated in 3 years and currently fails trying
to import the 'fedora_cert' module.

Secondly, how is this not in a package yet? It's an extremely useful tool
for determining if initiating the non-responsive maintainer process.

Fedora 31: dnf upgrade suddenly enables modular streams for protobuf

Today I've attempted to run "dnf upgrade".

It has the following in it:

protobuf x86_64 3.6.1-6.module_f31+6793+1c93c38e updates-modular

Enabling module streams:

I don't consider this behavior adequate for a released Fedora version.

As a maintainer of dependent packages (Cura stack) I have tested and built it
against the nonmodular protobuf. What just happened here and how do I track it down?

dnf doesn't even tell me what module is this in. I suppose eclipse.

However, protobuf was not mentioned in <a href="" title=""></a>

Issue with Fedora GeoIP service

When installing Fedora 31 on a system, I noticed that anaconda defaulted
to US/Pacific for the time zone, rather than the correct US/Central.
I'm on a Google Fiber connection, and when I check Fedora's service at
<a href="" title=""></a> I get the info for their HQ in
Mountain View. I'm pretty sure I got my proper location in the past.

What geoIP service is Fedora using for this?

Virtual problem

Hello list.

I have already install winserver 2019 on centos 7 qemu and works fine.

Now I install a second image with win 2019 and It connects to internet

Both installations use the same br0. Is that correct?

Any other suggestions?

Thank you.

VPN connections subject to hijack attack


This affects all VPNs and is a consequence of using "loose" reverse path
filtering for anti-spoofing. The default CentOS setting is strict filtering
but you may have changed this to loose for some unusual routing situations.
Check that the value of /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/rp_filter is still set
to 1.

updates to rpm/kernel-rt


I am writing because I would like to know if centos will update the kernel-rt package from
<a href="" title=""></a>

I ask because bz#1550584 <a href="" title=""></a> mentions "fixed in version kernel-rt-3.10.0-1063.rt56.1023.el7"
And the latest tag in "releases" link above is for kernel-rt-3.10.0-1062.7.1.rt56.1030.el7

1062 vs 1063

I would like to see if the kernel update fixes my latency problem.



Unresponsive maintainer: moezroy / Moez Roy (davfs2)


following the policy for non-responsive package maintainers [0], I'm
asking here if anybody knows how to contact moezroy (Moez Roy).

Moez, if you're still interested in maintaining your packages, please respond.

There several open bugs without response [1], including bug 1762083 [2] where
a user tried several times to get a response.

I submitted a simple pull request [3] which fixes the license declaration
(davfs2 switched its license 10 years ago!) and enables source file
verification but no response there either.

Allow comments and discussion even though an update was pushed to stable

Hi all,

I was recently bit by a bug, which was caused by a mismatch between texlive-biblatex and biber. The technical side is not so important, only so much that they need each other in a pretty specific version, which is not reflected on the rpm level.
What I found weird is that you can't comment on an update, which is already pushed to stable. A lot of users are only hit by a bug, once it reaches stable and then you don't have any possibility to highlight a bug report or an issue with this update.

Is ruby a good choice for infosec?

Greetings rubyist,

The internet is full of python for infosec, is ruby a good choice too ? I
know metasploit and Ronin are built in ruby but python has more security
focused packages like paramiko..

What's your take?

Thank you,

Failed to load SELinux policy- freezing

This is annoying! I have a CentOS7 virtual machine running on VirtualBox. Short version: At boot the system locks with a message:

"Failed to load SELinux policy, freezing."

VirtualBox thinks it is still running, and I can see it consuming a small amount of CPU time. But it never goes past this message.

The problem actually started with a problem in the sound system on this virtual machine. It would boot a ways through, then abort with no warning and no message. It just went away.

my name is Philip Matura and I'm currently a student in mathematics. In

Help with screen comand

I have used the screen command in the past, but it has been quite a while.
I am trying to set it up on an Ubuntu machine to allow other users to
"shadow" my session as a teaching tool. I found this link:

But I am having issues making it work I have run

screen -d -m -S multisession

followed by

screen -r multisession

And, indeed this does put me in a session, but I get no response to the
CTRL A keystroke.

Self Introduction: Theo Papadopoulo


My name is Theo Papadopoulo. I use linux based systems since 1996 and
redhat/fedora ones since so long I do not quite remember (2005-2007?).
Fedora is used within the research group (and actually with the research
institute where I am) I belong to as the main computing platform. I'm
participating in some specialized open source project you may not even
know (OpenMEEG, OpenViBE or medInria) and occasionally helped in some
more widespread - to somne extent - ones (blitz, matio, xtensor).

(thinking about) unretiring xmlbeans

xmlbeans [1,2] got retired because of lack of maitainers.
It's used by diffoscope now, so I'm thinking about adopting it.
Any major reasons not to?

OCaml 4.09.0 will be added to Fedora 32 via a side tag

Builds will start soon into a side tag (f32-build-side-14856), and
then if everything goes OK I will merge it into Rawhide.

This version should have fixed RISC-V support which is broken
currently (and requires some extremely difficult to backport fixes -
we already tried that and gave up, so upgrading to OCaml 4.09 is the
only solution if you want fixed RISC-V support).

Unresponsive maintainer: anujmore / Anuj More

Hi Anuj,

I am starting unresponsive maintainer process [0], because I am trying
to contact you in attempt to fix [1] after years. Your last action I am
aware of is granting permissions to rubygem-lumberjack [2], but that is
already almost two years and unfortunately, neither your other packages
are a not in best shape, I speak namely about:

rubygem-connection_pool (which where this started [1]).

rubygem-faker (this was never imported into repository [3])


rubygem-lumberjack (well, this is maintaned by jackorp nowadays, but he
is not the POC)

So Anuj, are you with us?

Last chance to vote for FESCo

Should we discontinue the Python Classroom Lab?


I'd like to know whether it makes sense to continue maintaining and producing
the Fedora Python Classroom Lab.

It has problems:

- no issue tracker, I don't even know if there are users with issues
- there has simple been close to zero feedback, maybe nobody uses this?

- the website is horribly outdated: <a href="" title=""></a>

- some Fedora versions weren't built:
- I wasn't notified when F29 wasn't built
- there was no way to get it fixed ex-post
- <a href="" title=""></a>

- Docker is broken
- one of the main ideas was t

Fedora without compressed instruction support

Dear David Abdurachmanov,

I have seen your presentation about fedora bootstrap on RV64, it was very

written some steps where I can do changes. This steps completely I have
taken from your presentation. Please correct my steps whether I am going in
correct way or not ? I am new to fedora as well as bootstrap process.

Marble, KGeography and Crimea


I just found that Crimea belongs to Ukraine according to both marble and
kgeography, it's critical because our distributions are used in schools.

Crimea should be considered as disputed territory between Russia and Ukraine
since 2014.

For example, Crimea is shown at google maps Russian for russian users and
Ukrainian for others.

Hi everybody,

The "thrift" package was updated in rawhide and changed the name of
its library (which is oddly versioned anyway, and the "main" package

At least gnuradio needs to be rebuilt for the new version (if it
supports the new library version?
