What pulls in weak dependencies?

Hi,

Running `dnf update`, it tries to install:

Builders with different Mock version and different results

I wonder why different builders has different version of mock and why
the build result differs?

The scratch build passes:

<a href="https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=33303459" title="https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=33303459">https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=33303459</a>

While the official fails:

<a href="https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=33303270" title="https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=33303270">https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=33303270</a>

Also, I wonder what is this "BUILDSTDERR:" I don't think the output goes
to stderr nor it makes the output more readable :/

Orphaning rubygem-multipart

Hi,

I don't have any use for rubygem-multipart, therefore I orpahned the
package. There was no upstream change past 10 years and nobody is
probably using the package.

Orphaning Fog (most of rubygem-fog* packages)

Hi,

I have orphaned most of the Fog stack [1, 2]. Fog is the Ruby cloud
services library, top to bottom, collections provide a simplified
interface, making clouds easier to work with and switch between.

Fog was originally introduced into Fedora just as a dependency of
Vagrant.

Orphaned rubygem-fakeweb

Hi everybody,

rubygem-fakeweb used to be part of Ruby on Rails dependency chain, but
it is not anymore. Therefore I am going to orphan the package.

The package is not well maintained upstream and there are better
maintained packages such as webmock.

Orphaned rubygem-rails-observers

Hi all,

This package used to be part of Ruby on Rails, later it was removed from
the framework and extracted into independent gem mainly for backward
compatibility. This package is FTBFS ATM, presumably since Ruby on Rails
5.2 were imported into F29, because there is one test failure. Upstream
does not bother to fix this issue and because I don't have any use for
this package, I just orphaned it.

CMake Error: No source or binary directory provided

Hi,

It seems that since CMake 3.13, it is required to invoke the cmake
command explicitly with path to source, which was not required
previously.

Vagrant dependencies updated in Rawhide

Hi Vagrant users,

If you are using Vagrant together with libvirt backend (default on
Fedora), please be warned that today, I have updated fog-libvirt
(dependency of vagrant-libvrit) and its dependencies in Rawhide. Because
fog upstream is currently a bit of a mess, where some major
sub-components are not compatible between each other, it might be that I
missed something and Vagrant might not work for you anymore.

fedora-package purpose and future

Hi,

I am wondering what is the purpose of fedora-packager package and what
is its future? It seems to be abandoned upstream as well as in Fedora
[1, 2, 3, 4]. This is a bit unfortunate considering this is package
every Fedora packager has to have installed. Is there a chance to give
that package a bit of love?

Unannounced soname bump in libevent

It appears that yesterday build of libevent bumped its soname. That
means that, at minimum, Memcahed is broken now.

BTW it is well possible, that the packager did not noticed the soname
bump, since the libraries are included into package by wildcards in
files section [1].

Which Fedora/EPEL is targeted by packaging guidelines?

Hi all,

Reading logs from yesterdays FPC meeting [1], I think we should discuss
what is actually purpose of packaging guidelines and which version of
Fedora/EPEL/RHEL they actually targets.

Apparently, there are two camps of packagers in Fedora/EPEL. Those who want:

1) single version of .spec file to cover the whole Red Hat ecosystem.

2) clean .spec file following the latest and greatest packaging practices.

I personally belong to the group (2) and that is for several reasons:

a) I use Rawhide on daily basis and I develop only for Rawhide.

Orphaning rubygem-logging

Hi all,

un-retire rubygem-factory_girl

Hi,

rubygem-factory_girl was retired during march since it was orphaned for
some while. I did not picked it up at that time, since nothing was using
it. Now I discovered that it would be handy to have it in Fedora to be
able to execute test suite of rubygem-cucumber-rails. Hence I inted to
un-retire it. Here is the re-review request:

Orphaning rubygem-configuration

Hi all,

I have orphaned rubygem-configuration in F26+.

This package was previously required by rubygem-launchy, but it is not
needed anymore. Therefore I orphaned F26+, but keep the F2{4,5} till
their EOL. Feel free to pick the package if you have any use for it or
let it be garbage collected, since the upstream seems to be abandoned
anyway.

Ruby packages free to grap

Hi all,

Michal Fojtík recently orphaned all his packages due to lack of the
resources to maintain them properly (thans to taking care of them).

mutter broken in Rawhide

To all Rawhide users, be careful with update of mutter. It seems that
mutter-3.23.2-2.fc26 is broken [1], which prevents you from log in to
your system. Downgrade to mutter-3.23.1-2.fc26.x86_64 workarounded the
issues for me.
