MySQL ODBC connector - deprecation


*I'd like to remove 'mysql-connector-odbc' package from Fedora.I'm looking
for feedback for such an action.*

For a long time 'mysql-connector-odbc' was the only connector of its kind
in Fedora.
However it is not update for a many releases, because upstream disabled
dynamic linking. It was building agains MariaDB for quite a time too. But
that building broke, when MariaDB renamed its library.

Testing 'd be appreciated: MariaDB 10.2.10 in rawhide

Hello everybody,

if you work with MariaDB and you wanted to spare a while to test the new
10.2.10 version, which is currently in rawhide, I'd appreciate it!

I made changes to the RPM layout, so some plugins were detached from the
main server package.
Also, the MariaDB shared library now do reside in libdir, instead of
libdir/mariadb, false provides has been removed and Cmake argumets has to
be updated - which all could cause some unwanted effect I couldn't imagine.
Also, I'd like to know, if the <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat" title="https://bugzilla.redhat">https://bugzilla.redhat</a>.

MySQL, MariaDB

Hello everybody!

Since MariaDB 10.2 is finally stable and I resolved all issues that blocked
it for Fedora, I'd like to propose an update for Rawhide.

Current version of MariaDB: 10.1.24
Update planned to: 10.2.6 (or newer)

*This change introduces change of library name from "" to
*There are many dependant packages affected.*

The current (optimistic) plan is to deliver the update before Fedora 27 mass
rebuild <> at 12.7.2017.
Either the rebuild of all depending packages is inevitable.

Critpath - questions


some questions about Critpath, I was not able to find, looking at [1]
<> and [2]

TL;DR: why is MariaDB Critpath in F26 and Rawhide.

*1) *How can I list critpath packages?
I mean, this doesn't really show, what I expect:
# dnf groupinfo critical-path-base critical-path-apps critical-path-kde
critical-path-lxde critical-path-xfce critical-path-gnome core

*2)* How do I find out, which part of package is meant to be critpath?
I mean, who the hell would

Rotation logs - use or not to use

Cheers all,

I'm trying to do something with a patch in MariaDB, but I need to know
current situation about rotation logs.

*What's the problem:*
Upstream ship rotation log, we drop it out.
This started sometimes between F15 and F16.

Koji update to Kerberos problem

Hi, i need to continue using Koji even tommorow.
I am using Kerberos already, so I just add Fedora config file.

I believe, everything is set properly, because there exist more than one
login, that let me to the phase of writing down the password.

# kinit <a href="mailto: ... at FEDORAPROJECT dot ORG"> ... at FEDORAPROJECT dot ORG</a>
Password for ... at FEDORAPROJECT dot ORG:

However, my personal account seems to be missing.

# kinit <a href="mailto: ... at FEDORAPROJECT dot ORG"> ... at FEDORAPROJECT dot ORG</a>
kinit: Client ' ... at FEDORAPROJECT dot ORG' not found in Kerberos database
while getting initial credentials

What should I do?
What have I missed? (Some entry to Fedora LDAP or something?)
