Future of MongoDB - Legal Issues with SSPLv1

Hi folks,

as you may already know, MongoDB is now licensed under SSPLv1[1] as of
October 16.
Since SSPLv1 doesn't meet Fedora's license requirements, I'd like to
start a conversation
on MongoDB's future in Fedora.

Theoretically, we could maintain versions prior to October 15,
however, the new license
doesn't allow backporting (due to incompatibility with AGPLv3 - see
related thread[2] on
fedora legal list).

Intend to bump soname of minizip (and provide minizip-compat)

Hi all,

I intend to remove minizip from the zlib package and replace it with a more
maintained fork [1][2]. To preserve backwards compatibility and ease the
transition on maintainers of dependent packages, the idea is to provide
minizip-compat and minizip-compat-devel packages in the zlib minizip
package first.

Therefore, I would like to ask all maintainers of the packages depending on
minizip and/or minizip-devel to update their dependencies to minizip-compat
and minizip-compat-devel respectively.

For now this is just a "cosmetic" change without any breakages.

Self Introduction: Patrik Novotný

Hi Everyone,

Since I've just got sponzored - thank you jskarvad :) - it's time for me to
introduce myself. So here's my attempt :) .

I've discovered Linux, programming and the whole open source world about
7-8 years ago when I was at high school and immediately fell in love with
it. Even though I've studied electrical engineering I was much more
interested in software from the beginning. Driven mainly by my curiosity
and fascination by the concept of open source I've learned enough of coding
and Linux administration to get a job as a sysadmin at a smaller company in
Brno (Czech Republic).
