Orphening ncftp

Hello,

I'm planing to orphan ncftp, since the new version did not include
IPv6 support (patch from OpenBSD) [1], plus I'm not using it anymore.

NB. scripts using ncftp for mirroring can be switched to lftp, which
includes similar features and more.

Best regards.

HEADS-UP: mod_security_crs (Core Rule Set) updated to 3.0.0 (rawhide)

Hi All,

Please note that mod_security_crs (Core Rule Set, now from OWASP) has
been updated to 3.0.0 in rawhide, the update should be smooth for most
standard setup.

Copr repo athmane/mod_security[1] has been updated as well, note that
EL7 is broken atm due to RHBZ #1444652 [2]

Orphaning thttpd

Hi,

I'm orphaning thttpd since it didn't receive any updates for years,
plus upstream does not accept patches.

Other distros already switched for some forks [1].

Looking for reasons why mod_security pkg was orphaned/retired

Hi,

I'm (co-/) maintainer of mod_security, I noticed that the owner
orphaned
it and then retired it, obviously I can't take it over. [1]

I'm kindly asking for the reasons ?

I'm maintaining this package (on fedora and epel) lately so it safe
to assign to me if it's possible.

CCing the former and new owners.

Thanks.

Orphaning ncpfs

Hi,

I've orphaned ncpfs because it's a dead upstream (access to
source/tarballs is not possible).

I took it in the first place because I had a package that depends on
ncpfs-devel but it's no longer the case.

Regards.

Self introduction

Hi,

I'm Athmane Madjoudj (FAS/IRC: athmane), I work as a sysadmin (RHCE) and
I've been using fedora since Fedora Core 6 (or so), I'm also member of
Fedora Quality Assurance and Infrastructure teams.

I would like to start contributing to fedora packaging, and I'm looking
for a sponsor (I'm familiar with rpm and I did some commenting on review
requests in the past).

Here's my packages that need a review:

Xfce/LXDE wiki page seems outdated

Hello,

Sorry for posting this here, I'm not subscribed to Xfce and LXDE lists.

As of Fedora 15, Xfce/LXDE are included in DVD (I checked on x86_64
DVD), but wiki pages [1] and [2] still mention about not being available
in DVD and the requirement of Internet connection.
