CharLS update to 2.0.0 required (soname bump) (rhbz 1744789)

(Re-sending, got the e-mail address wrong)


A new version of CharLS is out and needs to be updated in Fedora. It
contains changes in API/ABI so the following will need to be rebuilt:

dnf repoquery --disablerepo= --enablerepo=-source --arch=src --whatrequires CharLS-devel

I can rebuild all of these as they are maintained by NeuroFedora, but I
do not have commit rights to CharLS. A bug and PR for CharLS have been
pending for >3 weeks now but we've not had a response from the
maintenance team yet:

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

Could the maintenance team please take a look at this ASAP? Otherwise,
could you please:

- give the neuro-sig access to the package so we can help maintain it
(all its deps are maintained by us anyway)?
- or: indicate that it would OK for us to request a proven-packager to
accept these changes?

Either would work, but we'd really like to build the dependent packages

Following up from my last e-mail about CharLS needing an update on 21st
<a href=" ... at lists dot" title=" ... at lists dot"> ... at lists dot fedoraproject....</a>

Would anyone know how to contact either FAS:peter or FAS:devrim?

We have not received any replies on the bug, and the previous e-mail
on the subject here did not get a response either.

These are peter's bugs, they are not all inactive from the few I

These are devrim's bugs, the ones I checked have not received a
response from them:
<a href=";bug_status=ASSIGNED&amp;;emailassigned_to1=1&amp;emailtype1=substring&amp;list_id=10477042&amp;query_format=advanced" title=";bug_status=ASSIGNED&amp;;emailassigned_to1=1&amp;emailtype1=substring&amp;list_id=10477042&amp;query_format=advanced">;bug_status=ASSIGN...</a>


- could a proven packager please look into the PR
- Could the maintainers please give the package to me (ankursinha) and
the neuro-sig so we can maintain it?

I guess this counts as one of the steps of the non-responsive maintainer

Apologies, I was not aware that I am maintaining CharLS. Sorry.

Merged. Build is running on rawhide. Once it is done, I'll rebuild the
following packages as mentioned in the PR:


Please let me know if I need to do more.
