Interest in doing Fedora CI with test subpackages

Hey all-
I was starting to setup CI for one of my packages in Fedora (cscope),
which requires that I have access to the sources to run my test (cscope uses its
own source tree to search for various symbols to confirm that its working
properly). Getting the sources in the CI environment is a bit of a pain, so I
started working on trying to do this by creating a test subpackage (specifically
named -citest) to package up the sources solely for the purpose of getting them
installed and available during CI runs.

intent to unretire metapixel

Hey all-
I'd like to unretire and take ownership of metapixel:
<a href="https://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/schani/metapixel/" title="https://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/schani/metapixel/">https://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/schani/metapixel/</a>

There hasn't been a release in several years, but its got continual updates in a
few upstream git trees:

<a href="https://github.com/schani/metapixel/commits/master" title="https://github.com/schani/metapixel/commits/master">https://github.com/schani/metapixel/commits/master</a>

I've managed to fix up the build issues with libpng and have produced several
cool mosaics with it. Any issues please let me know

DSO API stability guidelines

Hey all-
Can anyone point me to fedora packaging documentation that discusses the
need for API stability in packaged shared libraries? I'm sure we have some
requirement that APIs in a DSO need to be versioned and maintained through a
release, but for the life of me I'm unable to find it.

Thanks!
Neil

I've got two review requests outstanding (one of them has been
