Review swaps

Hello good folks,

A developer tasked me with packaging his small CLI tools so I have a few
reviews waiting. They are extremely trivial packages, often a simple Python
script or single C file.

Review swaps


I have a handful of packages that I'd like to be reviewed.

Review swaps

Hello fellow packagers,

I'd like to ask your help for a handful of reviews.

Review swaps


I've added a bunch of packages to review, I'll review yours in exchange of mine.
No Java or PHP packages as I'm not familiar with those.

Here is the list with each dependency:

── 1508034 Review Request: rssguard - Simple yet powerful feed reader
<a href="" title=""></a>

── 1508002 Review Request: uTox - The lightweight Tox client
│ <a href="" title=""></a>

├── 1507985 Review Request: libfilteraudio - Lightweight audio filtering library made
│ from webrtc code
│ https://

Review swap


Is anyone interested by a review swap? I'd like my package rclone [1] to be
reviewed (it's written in Golang). Except php and Java with which I'm not
familiar, I think I can handle anything else.

Best regards,

Display bug of programs using qt5-qtquickcontrols2 5.9.1


On Fedora 27, the programs using qt5-qtquickcontrols2 do not display icon or
text at all.

There are very few programs using qt5-qtquickcontrols2, one of them is plasma-

<a href="" title=""></a>

Notice the lack of caption on the "Install" buttons.

Another program that makes a heavy use of qt5-qtquickcontrols2 is Orion, a
Twitch client which I provide on COPR (<a href="" title=""></a>

The interface doesn't contain any icon on the lateral bar or any text under
the pictures.

Curious build-id conflict while installing a package


While reviewing a package, I encountered an issue during the
installatiion phase of the review:

I don't really understand what's causing this, nor how to fix it.

Golang packages snapshot versionning


When packaging Golang librairies we often use development snapshots instead of
releases. In such case there is two conflicting guidelines regarding

- the "main" Guidelines that says the version should be YYYYMMDD<scm><revision>
Cf: <a href="" title=""></a>

- the Go Draft Guidelines that says the vesrion should just be <scm><revision>
without any date.
Cf <a href="" title=""></a>

Which one supersedes the other?

I need your reviews


After reviewing near 50 packages recently, I'd really like if anyone
could also review a few of my packages which are sitting around.
Of course, I'm open to review swaps, so if you have an old package that
have been waiting for a review too, please contact me.

Currently, I have waiting:
- intel-hybrid-driver: This enables VP9 decoding ability on Skylake/Kabylake
<a href="" title=""></a>
- qdirstat: a clone of k4dirstat written with Qt5
<a href="" title=""></a>
- A whole bunch of Golang library needed for packagin

Introduction/looking for a sponsor


My name is Robert-André and I'm looking to become a packager for Fedora.

I'm 33 years-old Frenchman. I first tried GNU/Linux in the late 90
with Debian and what was
then Mandrake. Back then with no Internet, I remember It was tough to
get set up and find
help. After a Windows period, I got back to Linux in 2005 with
Ubuntu's Hoary Hedgehog
