.. but not all its dependencies were rebuilt.

want to take ownership of the libnice package in Fedora

Following <a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Orphaned_package_that_need_new_maintainers#Claiming_Ownership_of_an_Orphaned_Package" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Orphaned_package_that_need_new_maintainers#Claiming_Ownership_of_an_Orphaned_Package">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Orphaned_package_that_need_new_maintainer...</a>
I would like to take ownership of the libnice package orphaned yesterday.

I have created the following releng issue for that:

Does anybody use JavaSript (ECMAScript) support in ELinks?

The JavaScript (ECMAScript) support in ELinks uses a legacy implementation
of the interpreter (mozjs-1.8.5). Several bugs of the legacy interpreter
breaking ELinks had to be debugged recently:

<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1177557" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1177557">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1177557</a>
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1425004" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1425004">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1425004</a>
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1446545" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1446545">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1446545</a>

I have never used the JavaScript support in ELinks myself so I cannot tell
how useful it actually is.

switching libcurl back to OpenSSL and providing the libcurl-minimal subpackage

In order to make even smaller Fedora base images, it was proposed to switch
libcurl back to OpenSSL. The Fedora Crypto Consolidation project, which
motivated the switch of libcurl from OpenSSL to NSS ten years ago, is now
deprecated and libcurl is the only package that pulls NSS as its dependency
into the Fedora base image.

introducing curl-minimal and libcurl-minimal RPM packages

The curl and libcurl packages, which are both required by dnf, have a lot of
run-time dependencies.

review swap: cscppc, cswrap

Hi,

is anyone willing to review or swap reviews of the following packages?

* cscppc - A compiler wrapper that runs cppcheck in background,
available at <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1066026>

* cswrap - Generic compiler wrapper,
available at <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1066028>

libssh2 - nonresponsive package maintainer

Hello,

does anybody know how to contact Chris Weyl?

He is the current maintainer of libssh2 Fedora package, which still breaks
(lib)curl in Fedora. However the fix is already available and the same issue
has been successfully resolved in RHEL-6:

<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/523796" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/523796">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/523796</a>
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/539444" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/539444">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/539444</a>

I am going to take over the package according to
