Review Swaps: Simple golang packages (for syncthing)

Hi everybody,

I need somebody to take on the Review Requests of the only 3 golang
dependencies that are still blocking a syncthing package:

golang-github-cznic-zappy:
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1431743" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1431743">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1431743</a>
golang-github-cznic-lldb:
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1431745" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1431745">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1431745</a>
golang-github-cznic-ql: <a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1431748" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1431748">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1431748</a>

They need to be reviewed in that order (because dependencies).

Review Swaps: (mostly) very simple golang packages

Hi everybody,

I've been putting together package Review Requests for all the golang
package dependencies of syncthing (an open source file synchronization
service). Some of them have already been reviewed (thank you, Jan! I feel
much more confident about my golang packaging now), but there are still 16
packages left.

The packages are (mostly) very simple (standard golang specs generated by
gofed), and I've added explanatory comments where they differ from the
automatically generated gofed output for the repository in question.

becoming a co-maintainer of plank

Hello Wesley,

I am working on getting all the elementary apps and pantheon desktop
components into fedora and wondered if you could approve my ACL Requests
for becoming a co-maintaner of plank (since that package is obviously also
part of a Pantheon DE and ties in with the other packages I am maintaining
already, see <a href="https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packager/decathorpe/" title="https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packager/decathorpe/">https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/packager/decathorpe/</a>).

Regards,
Fabio

Hello Johannes,

I am working on getting all the elementary apps and pantheon desktop
components into fedora and wondered if you could approve my ACL Requests
for becoming a co-maintaner of elementary-icon-theme (since that package
obviously ties in with the other packages I am now maintaining, see

f25+: vala 0.34.x+ bug causing .vapi file generation for ALL CURRENT PACKAGE BUILDS to be possibly faulty

I has come to my attention that - since the update to vala from the
0.34.x series has made it into the fedora 25(+) repositories - every
package that generates .vapi files during build might have done so
incorrectly, because of the following bug, which is present in vala
releases up to 0.34.3 (also including 0.35.1), but has been fixed in
git:

Functions that have a return type of a fixed-size array were not
treated correctly - they instead are wrongly indicated to return the
base type of the respective array (the array qualifier "[]" is
missing).

I reported this bug at
<a href="https://bugzilla.redha" title="https://bugzilla.redha">https://bugzilla.redha</a>

Self Introduction: Fabio Valentini (decathorpe)

Here goes my introduction as a new (or aspiring) package maintainer for fedora.

I have been using fedora as my daily driver OS for some years now (I
think starting with f18 or f19).
