Orphaning optipng

Hi,

I would like to orphan optipng. It is a PNG compression optimizer that I
do not use anymore. Usually it does not make much work but two CVEs were
published recently. I will fix them and then orphan the package unless
someone would like to adopt it. Please state four FAS name if you like
to take it.

Kind Regards
Till

orphaned wyrd

Hi,

I orphaned wyrd, a curses frontend for the remind calendar tool.
Upstream seems to be somehow gone and I do not use anymore therefore I
would not like to spend more time on it. There seems to be at least two
users still interested in it:

Orphaned apvlv, herbstluftwm, xsettingsd and python-tlslite

Hi,

I just orphaned apvlv, herbstluftwm, xsettingsd and python-tlslite. I do
no longer use them and only adopted them because they sounded useful or
I needed them back then. I cannot really tell about their upstream
status, they might not be completely dead. Please pick them up if you
would like to keep them in Fedora. Otherwise I will retire them
eventually.

Kind regards
Till

No retiring of packages with broken deps for Fedora 26

Hi,

since there were too many packages with broken dependencies and we lack
the tooling to properly identify which packages can be safely retired
without endangering the final compose, the current packages with broken
dependencies will not be retired for Fedora 26. We are going to rework
the cleanup process to get a better balance between removing broken
packages and ensuring a safe delivery. There will be new notifications
when things are worked out.

libinfinity soname bump

Hi,

libinfinity will be updated to 0.7.0 soon which includes a soname bump.
AFAICS nothing else depends on it.

Are MP3 files now permitted in Fedora packages?

Hi,

Since Fedora now ships a MP3 decoder, does the Code vs Content section
in the Packaging Guidelines[0] now need a update to allow MP3 file or
are MP3 files still not permitted?

Kind regards
Till

Orphaned oflb-riordonfancy-fonts

Hi,

I just orphaned oflb-riordonfancy-fonts - it is a FTBFS package I tried
to save from retirement a while ago thinking that maintaining a font
should not be that hard. However I realized I do not have the time to
get to understand why it does not build. Therefore I orphaned it for now
and will retire it later if nobody adopts it.

Kind regards
Till
