Configuration file migration without scriptlets


is there any mechanism in Fedora for config file migration? How would
you make changes to a configuration file (maybe after some config option
has been renamed), or move a config file to a new location, during
upgrade? Is there a better way than running 'sed' and 'cp' in a scriptlet?


Best regards

Dropping i2c-tools-devel, introducing libi2c and libi2c-devel


I'm rebasing i2c-tools to 4.0 in Rawhide (F28) and the rebase involves
dropping the i2c-tools-devel subpackage and introducing libi2c and
libi2c-devel. The change will happen only in F28.

For a long time, i2c-tools bundled their own version of
/usr/include/linux/i2c-dev.h which, compared to the kernel version of
the file, additionally contained definitions from <linux/i2c.h> and
inline functions i2c_smbus_*() taken from the kernel.

Until recently, i2c-tools in Fedora did not include the i2c-dev.h file,
probably because of the name collision.

Non-responsive maintainer: jcapik


I'd like to start the non-responsive maintainer process for Jaromir
Capik (jcapik). I've been trying to contact him through a bugzilla, but
haven't received a reply in over two weeks:
<a href="" title=""></a>

I also attempted to contact him directly using email on 2017-09-01 and
then on 2017-09-13, but I didn't receive a reply.

It appears he hasn't been active in Fedora in a while.

Provide Make variable for -keep-new-mtime


I'm sending a patch that makes use of the KEEP_NEW_MTIME Make variable
to set the -keep-new-mtime option of postfix-install during 'make install'.


Processing order of canonical maps


I need some help configuring canonical maps.

Suppose you have two lookup tables listed in canonical_maps and each of
these tables uses all three pattern types (user@domain, user, @domain).

Preserve timestamps during 'make install'


I'm sending a patch that eliminates certain (unwanted) warnings caused
by unnecessary update of modification time during 'make install'. See
the downstream bug report at [1] for more details. The attached patch
was created by Robert Scheck.
