Agree. They can start with the interesting part - coding - first.

Exactly. We would provide information how to get it running on Fedora - like
the current Ruby guide. (They can, of course, use DevAssistant)

Good point. I didn't think about it this way.

[Test-Announce] Proposal to CANCEL: 2015-07-27 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! Sorry for the late notice, but I'm proposing we cancel
Monday's QA meeting. I think we covered everything in the last couple
of weeks' meetings, and it's time to get some serious testing done on
Alpha TC2 :)

I guess there'll be a blocker meeting at 1600 UTC.

If anyone can think of something urgent to discuss, please reply to
this mail and we can get together at the usual time (15:00 UTC in

Self Introduction: Jens Lody

Hello, I am Jens.

I just submitted two packages for review (gnome-shell-extension
-openweather and gnome-shell-extension-panel-osd).

Besides maintaining these two extensions, I'm one of the core
-developers of Code::Blocks and maintain nightly builds of C::B for
Fedora and RedHat/CentOS on copr (

I helped fixing a build-bug in pcsc-cyberjack ( and am interested
in becoming a co-maintainer of this packager

At work I am a software (and sometimes hardware) engineer and build
controls for purification plants and natural baths (mainly in germany,
sometimes austria).

I'm married and father of four children from 5 to 23 years (two of them
live still at home).

Help me bisect boot problem.


My main computer is affected by bugs and

The correct way to solve this bug would be for me to bisect from
4.0.4-303.fc22 to see which patch broke on my system. Unfortunately I
have not been able to do this using the guides available or while
asking on the fedora-devel irc channel. So I am asking here instead.

Is there a step-by-step guide anywhere on how to actually do this kind
of bisect on a fedora system?

Best regards

Review swap:

Hi all,

I'm looking for a review for [1]. refreshes individual keys in your GnuPG keyring at
randomized intervals. Each key is refreshed over a unique, single-use
Tor circuit.

The package is rather simple, as it only consists of a single bash
script and a parameterized systemd service.

I'll review a package in return.

Updates not getting pushed?

I have updates for both F21 and F22 that were requested for testing on 
the 22nd and still haven't been pushed, but I also can't change them 
because trying to do so says:

"Unable to add or remove builds from an update that is currently being 
pushed to the testing repository"

It's been saying that for at least 24 hours.

Have they got stuck somehow? or is there a general problem with pushing

About making noarch package arch specific, when contents differ.

I had this build failure:

Package:    sagemath-6.5-7.fc22
Status:     failed
Built by:   pcpa
ID:         672175
Started:    Sat, 25 Jul 2015 22:52:10 UTC
Finished:   Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:57:28 UTC

Closed tasks:
Task 10480570 on
Task Type: build (noarch)

mismatch when analyzing sagemath-doc-en-6.5-7.fc22.noarch.rpm, rpmdiff
output was:
error: cannot open Packages index using db5 - Permission denied (13)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
added       /usr/share/doc/sagemath/output/html/en/reference/hecke

The interesting part, is that the above build generated
packages, but ended up with failed state.
After that, I checked contents of the armv7hl and x86_64
trees, and noticed that they are, indeed not identical.
The way documentation is generated with sphinx, should
be part of the cause (when it pickle/unpicke python states, etc),
and sometimes it even adds the location of a file to the docs,
e.g. telling where source is located, causes diffs, from
/usr/lib/python2.7/... vs /usr/lib64/python2.7/...

Should I make the doc packages arch specific?

New openCOLLADA built for rawhide

I wasn't aware the openCOLLADA picked up a new dependent, libreoffice. I was used to it just being blender!

The latest blender, 2.75 would not build with the version in Fedora so an update was necessary.

I'm still waiting on a response from the blender maintainer on which branches he wishes to update. I'll add openCOLLADA to a buildroot override for the other branches. I may need the help of a provenpackager to push everything in one update.
