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,
Jordan

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.

This package uses boost-python3.

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.
