/proc/sys/net/core/optmem_max on armv7l

Hello together,

I just noticed, there is a difference in the default value of
`/proc/sys/net/core/optmem_max` on armv7l:

On all arches it is 20480, but on armv7l it is 10240.

Is there any specific reason for limiting the maximum ancillary buffer
size allowed per socket on this arch?

Cheers,
Björn

libjson-c.so.3 comes to Rawhide

Hello folks,

I'll update json-c to v0.13 for Rawhide. This will bump libjson-c so-
name from 2 to 3 and will remove some deprecated stuff from its API.

I'll bump and rebuild all affected packages in the same run and add
patches for the new API, if needed.

Review swap

Hello folks,

I have a few simple gnome-shell-extension packages to offer for review
and will review swap a complicated package or few other easy to review
packages.

Replace glibc's libcrypt with libxcrypt for Fedora 29/30

Hello everyone,

since there has been some discussion in the last time about removing
libcrypt from glibc in some time [1,2,3,4] and splitting it out into a
separate project which can evolve quicker, I'd like to hear your
oppinion about replacing glibc's libcrypt with libxcrypt [5] for Fedora
29 (or 30).

libxcrypt will be fully binary compatible with software linked against
glibc's libcrypt and does not require any rebuilds. However, the
converse is not true: programs linked against libxcrypt will not work
with glibc's libcrypt.

Updating jsoncpp on Rawhide and fc27

Hello folks,

I'm planning to update jsoncpp on Rawhide and fc27 during the next
days.  After the builds have landed, I'll take care of rebuilding all
consumers against the new so name.  Since the API / ABI has no publicly
consumed symbols removed, I don't expect any real problems.

Cheers,
  Björn

Nested rich-dependencies in rpm

Hello folks,

I hope someone can help me with the following question:
Does recent Fedora's rpm support nested rich-dependencies like:

Supplements: (pkg_a and pkg_b and pkg_c and (pkg_d or pkg_e))

Is there any way to express a dependency like that?

Cheers
Björn

Broken libglvnd in Rawhide

Hello list!

Looks like someone broke libglvnd in Rawhide. I noticed it, when I got
flooded with "dependencies failed to resolve" notifications from Koshei.

I already filed an issue [1] with Releng and explained how to fix it.

Cheers,
Björn
