Re: iproute package update policy

Please, stay on topic.

Could you please explain why the kernel is following a very aggressive
policy of being very close to upstream, and related kernel tools must
remain outdated ?

Thank you.

Fwd: [Libjpeg-turbo-users] jpeg-9, API/ABI compatibility, and the future role of this project

hi,

As Fedora was pioneering in the libjpeg-turbo inclusion
maybe you are interested in this discussion.

<a href="http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=50E4AF86.50203%40users.sourceforge.net&amp;forum_name=libjpeg-turbo-users" title="http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=50E4AF86.50203%40users.sourceforge.net&amp;forum_name=libjpeg-turbo-users">http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=50E4AF86.50203%...</a>

original UNIX tools/utils for Linux

hi,

The AT&T AST OpenSource software collection [1] , The Heirloom Project [2]
and Plan 9 from User Space [3] bring a lot of original UNIX tools/utils.

Some of them have already been taken, mailx from Heirloom and ksh from
AST. pax looks like a candidate.

pax in Fedora comes from a OpenBSD port, made by SuSE in 2oo1 [4] .
But the project was frozen||abandoned in 2oo5.
