Question regarding systemd service unit cleanup

Hi,

I have removed dependency on service B from service A and all references to service B. The new package works well for fresh install (service A can be started normally), but it does not work for upgrades from previous versions where service A used to depend on service B (starting service A fails as it can't fine the service unit for service B). After upgrade from a previous version of the package, I noticed that a symlink to service B is left under /etc/system/system/A.service.requires dir that is causing the issue:
# ls -l /etc/systemd/system/A.service.requires
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx.

FreeGLUT update with soname bump

Hi! I'll be updating FreeGLUT to 3.2.1 today.

Old changelog entries removal

Hello all.

Is it possible to remove old %changelog entries from SPECs? I can't find
information about this in Fedora packaging guidelines.

All history still can be found in git log.

Unresponsive Maintainer: bpereto

Hi fellow Fedorans,

I'm trying to contact Benjamin Pereto (FAS: bpereto), maintainer of
borgbackup and borgmatic.

I have started the non-responsive maintainer process as borgmatic has
not seen an update in over a year and is currently suffering from broken
dependencies and some packaging problems (such as not building for noarch).
I am maintaining an updated and fixed version here:

Self Introduction: rufo

Hi everyone,

My name is Rufus and I'm a developer from the UK. I'm just beginning my
journey into Fedora packaging, although I've been a happy end-user
since the days of Red Hat 9.

I'm currently learning about the packaging process and guidelines, so I
can better contribute to a couple of existing packages I use which need
some help. In time, perhaps I will be able to submit new packages of my
own which would benefit Fedora users.

package name and spec name missmatch

Hi All,
An rpm package has been created by name fctxpd.
<a href="https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/fctxpd" title="https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/fctxpd">https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/fctxpd</a>

But my spec file name and the name field in my spec file is fc_txptd.

And my SRPM also has the name with fc_txptd.
And I push the SRPM with fc_txptd because of which fedpkg build is failing.

fedpkg import PATH_TO_SRPM
git commit -m "Initial import (#XXXXXX)."
git push
fedpkg build

Do I need to create a new SRPM with fctxpd and push the same again to git.

Will this resolve my issue.
Any help here will be great.

Regards,
Muneendra.

skychart package updates broken after module retirement

Recently, I requested to retire Skychart module and this has been done
in F31 and F32:

Now I'm trying to push an update to Skychart classic RPMs, Koji shows it
as tagged both in F30-updates-testing and F31-updates-testing, but
there's no sign of them in the repositories:

Fedora Workstation and disabled by default firewall

Hello all.

Is it okay that firewall is completely disabled by default (opened all
ports 1025-65535) on Fedora Workstation?

I think that this is a major vulnerability and it must be fixed by
changing default zone to public.

Xorg 1.20.4-7.el7

Just tried building a scratch build of xorgxrdp, but this still pulls in the old Xorg, before RHEL 7.7 version. Could someone please change that, so that builds pick the latest package up.

Capitalized name in bugzilla review request and pagure repo

Greetings,

I believe I have an issue. Please direct me to the correct list if the
following is not applicable here.

My first package was recently approved, however, no one (myself included)
noticed that the bugzilla review request title contained a capitalized name:

Review Request: Charliecloud [...]

I initially didn't think anything of it until the pagure repository was
created.

Pidgin on EPEL8

Hello all.

While building my Fedora packages for EPEL8, got a very strange error on
aarch64 and s390x architectures:

No matching package to install: 'pkgconfig(pidgin)'

But it builds fine with the same SPEC on x86_64 and ppc64le.

Self Introduction: Muneendra

Greetings,

My name is Muneendra Kumar, I’m working for Broadcom . I have been working
in Linux for more than 15 years and submitted couple of commits to open
source.

I need to submit a new package in the FEDORA which I am working on which is
completely based on FC(fibre channel).

I've never made any kind of packages before, so please bear with me if I
make any mistakes.

target font model on Freedesktop systems

Hi,

Now that things are starting to move fonts-side[1], I’d like the various
actors to agree on a common font model target.

Without a a common target, we’ll end up working at odds with one
another. Upstream font files can not serve as a an officious target.
They are full of quirks, you end up with a different model per file-set.

My understanding of the state of the art is that OpenType is now
hegemonic. So it’s useless to target anything not specified in OpenType
specs.

Unresponsive Package Reviewer

Greetings,

It is has been 49 days since my package reviewer, Dave Love, last responded
to my review request: <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1690046" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1690046">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1690046</a>. How
do I proceed?

Note: I understand reviewers are pressed for time and I appreciate the heroic
efforts that keeps this community going.

Best,

Firewalld v nftables

This was patched out, because an official feature was never submitted. Now that RHEL8 is using that combo, maybe it's time to try again? :-)

Procedure to get keytable included in official console and X and wayland keytables.

I use a custom keymapping that I developed to save my hands, and
because it is very efficient. It's strength is that the most used keys
are under the strongest fingers, and that for my typing about 80% of
what I type is on the home row.

The problem is that whenever I have issues with my system, it reverts
to qwerty, and I have to hunt and peck to do things. If it was
official, this wouldn't be a problem, because I could just select it,
the same as one can select dvorak or colemak.

New Go Packaging Guidelines landed in rawhide (koji) today

Hi,

Fedora’s new Go packaging macros landed in rawhide (koji) today.

The corresponding Fedora Go packaging conventions are therefore
EFFECTIVE for new rawhide builds.

build failure using boost-python3 on ppc64le

Hash: SHA512

I am trying a scratch build of libpst, and I don't understand the
error.

f30 update & bluetooth

I just updated F30 via dnf update.
The kernel in use went from 5.0.13-300.fc30.x86_64 to 5.0.17-300.fc30.x86_64
I regularly use two Bluetooth devices, an aging Microsoft mouse and
Apple Air Pods (ear phones).
Now they are both quite flaky:
While moving, the mouse will connect for a few milli-seconds then
disconnect.

Self Introduction: Jordan Ogas

Greetings,

My name is Jordan, I'm a member of the Programming and Runtime Environment
team for the High Performance Computing Division (HPC) at the Los Alamos
National Laboratory (LANL). I have been encouraged by my package reviewer,
Dave Love, to introduce myself to the community in an effort to assimilate
Fedora packaging culture and increase the likely hood of being sponsored.

It is my goal to become the official Charliecloud package maintainer and an expert
in software packaging. The Charliecloud package under review is the first package
I've ever created.

Announcing libkpmcore upgrade

Hi all,

I'm planning to upgrade kpmcore and kde-partitionmanager to version
4.0.0 in rawhide. This will bring a soname bump to libkpmcore, which is
used only (as far as I know) by kde-partitionmanager and calamares.

I'll take care of rebuilding calamares. BTW, calamares in Fedora repo is
a bit outdated (still at 3.1.8, latest is 3.2.7), I hope it to be
compatible with kpmcore 4.0.0.

If all goes well, it would be nice to have kde-partitionmanager upgraded
in F30 also, because it solves some outstanding problems with GUI run as
root user.
