Fedora 21 Final blocker bug status report #1

Hi folks! We're now into the Fedora 21 Final freeze period, and we
really need to address blocker bugs promptly to try and make the
scheduled release date. On the current schedule Go/No-Go will happen on
2014-12-04, which means we really need the final release candidate built
by 2014-12-02, so even if December feels like a long time away, it
really isn't that much time to get everything fixed!

Self Introduction: Colin Macdonald

Hi all,

I've been a Fedora user since 2008 and long-time GNU/Linux user on other
distros before that.

I'm currently working on packaging "Biber" (#1165620) which is a LaTeX
bibliography tool, with the kind help of  <at> psabata and  <at> mef.  I've
maintained a copr of this for six months or so.   <at> psabata has sponsored
me.  Its all Perl stuff which is a bit off-topic for me (but have to
start somewhere).

My interests are in mathematics and scientific computing (particularly
Octave and Python tools).  If I had the time, I'd like to help improve
Fedora's coverage of scientific packages (Octave packages, PETSc,
FEniCS, others).

I'm also personally (as a user) interested in pen/touch devices: really
want a cheap Fedora/Gnome 3/Xournal tablet.  A previous foray left me
disappointed by the "wild-west" of Android on ARM (have a Fedora chroot
but never did get Xournal working to my satisfaction).

cheers,
Colin

Fedora scientific packaging

Hello,

Some time ago I started working on packaging Salome, the platform for 
numerical simulation. As always, time is a limited resource, and things 
kinda stalled after hitting a few issues here and there, despite most of 
the work being done. Now, with Jiri Kastner joining the effort, we 
decided that it would be nice to attempt to make the effort of packaging 
scientific packages for Fedora in general more public, in particular 
considering the scientific-spin effort [1].
Many of the larger scientific packages tend to be very complex and their 
build systems occasionally somewhat fragile... So getting more 
interested people involved would likely increase the chances of the 
efforts succeeding.

That said, there is now a github repo which contains the 
work-in-progress stuff for packaging Salome (and some initial OpenFOAM 
work) here [2]. People interested in joining these efforts or sharing 
initial work on other scientific packages are very welcome to join the 
github project.

Best,
Sandro

update on ca-certificates, introducing the ca-legacy utility

Resending this as a new thread, for increased visibility.

As explained in the older thread, the Mozilla project has started to
remove CA certificates that contain weak keys. Those removals cause
issues with software based on OpenSSL, and software based on older
versions of GnuTLS.

(A short description of the issue can be found in tracker bug
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1166614 - I intend to file a
ticket against OpenSSL shortly.)

For Fedora, we have decided to keep the legacy CA certificates included
and trusted by default, in order to avoid compatibility issues, until we
get functional updates to OpenSSL.

I'm documenting the changes on top of the Mozilla CA
list at: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/CA-Certificates

However, we want to provide users/administrators with the ability to
change the default, by configuring the ca-certificates to strictly
follow the trust decisions made by Mozilla, thereby accepting the
compatibility issues (e.g. untrusted TLS connections, if certificates of
affected server configurations cannot be validated).

The above has been implemented for Fedora 21, it looks like it will be
included as part of the Fedora 21 release:
  ca-certificates-2014.2.1-1.5.fc21.noarch

Using the new ca-legacy utility, it is possible to disable trust for the
legacy CA certificates as a systemwide configuration, by executing this

Really making fonts awesome in Fedora 21

I was surprised at the blurriness of the _default_ font (Cantarell) on my new F21 install.

There were noticeable artefacts as well as general blurriness
with no noticeable difference between grayscale and rgba antialiasing.
Even worse was different text heights for bold and normal which
was immediately evident with text jumping around as I traversed
my thunderbird unread message list.

I used gnome-tweak-tool to change all Cantarell to Sans and the
experience was _much_ better. BTW size 10 was much better proportioned
on my 1920x1080 screen, than the default size of 11.

I went digging on the Cantarell issue and it seems to be
the only one affected due to the CFF renderer in freetype >= 2.5
  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1035486

You can change most of the default fonts with gnome-tweak-tool
though the setting for the default font must be manually edited as per:
  http://rlog.rgtti.com/2012/01/29/how-to-modify-a-gnome-shell-theme/

Note also that chrome seems to honour GTK2 settings only:
  https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=375824

So while issues can be worked around, it's awkward
and the default experience should be getter IMHO.

Pádraig.

How to stop unneeded services?

Hello All!
Perhaps a silly question but I'm stuck and need your help, my fellow fedorians.

I've got a service foo.service which Requires=bar.socket (which in
turn runs bar.service). So if I start foo.service then systemd opens
bar.socket, captures first packet and runs bar.service (which isn't
intended to be started manually btw). So far everything works as
expected.

I was asked if it's possible to automatically stop bar.service (and
bar.socket) if no services which requires these two are active. I
played with StopWhenUnneeded +
BindsTo but without much success.

I believe this sounds like a generic pattern so perhaps someone
already implemented it. Could somebody point me on working example?
Any other help would be greatly appreciated.
