Downloading modularized packages from Koji


After some packages (such as Fish [1]) are released to Fedora modular
repository I would like to download them from Koji and play with them
(to provide feedback) not having to wait until a request to move to the
testing repository is accepted.

Unfortunately there are no RPM packages for modular builds in Koji UI [2].

Q. Have can I download built RPM packages available only in Koji?

Compilation issue after gcc removal


After the recent gcc removal from build root [1] I added explicit
dependency on gcc [2], but even though my pyxattr package started to
fail with [3][4]:
I've checked it and ENOATTR should be defined in attr/xattr.h which is
provided by the build dependency - libattr-devel. In addition are
installed glibc-headers [5].

I haven't been programming in C for years.

Recommended way of proposing changes in someone else Fedora packages configuration


I would like to propose a minor (yet important) change in one of the
Fedora packages configuration (a SPEC file and/or a patch). Is it
possible to create (something like) a pull request which could be
reviewed by the maintainer in some convenient way (*) and optionally
merged? Or the only way is to create a patch and put it into a Buzilla

(*) - a given package repo could be forked and published to GitHub with
a change in a separate branch.

Retiring fuse-smb package


I plan to retire fuse-smb which allows to mount SMB/Samba shares as
local directories before F21 is branched (2014-07-08).

There have been no new versions since 2008 and the maintainer is not
going to fix problem with crashes related to multi threading issues in
libsmbclient 3.2+.

pylibacl-0.4 - a license change from GPLv2+ to LGPLv2+


Starting from the version 0.4 pylibacl Python extension changed its
license from GPLv2+ to LGPLv2+. As the new license is less restrictive I
don't see any negative implications.


pyxattr 0.4.0 license change

Hello all,

pyxattr 0.4.0 has changed its license from GPLv2+ (in 0.2.2) to LGPLv2+

see any possible problems related to that, but if any please let me know.
