Paul's Blog Entries for December 2007

Monday 3rd December 2007

Fedora Project

  • Updated lat to fix build failure on Rawhide caused by dependency changes resulting in desktop-file-utils being missing from the buildroot, and more strict enforcement of the desktop spec by desktop-file-install

  • Updated perl-MailTools to 2.02

Local Packages

  • Updated getlive to 0.56 and added Delete=Yes to sample config file

  • Rebuilt perl-MailTools to sync the spec more closely with the Fedora package

Wednesday 5th December 2007

Fedora Project

  • Rebuilt perl-Net-SSLeay against the new version of openssl in Rawhide

  • Got perl-Jcode, perl-Unicode-Map, perl-Unicode-Map8, perl-Unicode-MapUTF8, and perl-Unicode-String branched for EPEL 4 and 5, with me as co-maintainer

  • Updated and built perl-Jcode for EPEL 4 and 5

Thursday 6th December 2007

Fedora Project

  • Updated and built perl-Unicode-String, perl-Unicode-Map, perl-Unicode-Map8, and perl-Unicode-MapUTF8 for EPEL 4 and 5.

Friday 7th December 2007

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-HTML-SimpleLinkExtor to 1.19

  • Updated contagged to 0.6.3

  • Rebuilt curl, dovecot, libcurl7112, libcurl7155, nmap, perl-Net-SSLeay, and sendmail for the new openldap and openssl in Rawhide

Monday 10th December 2007

Local Packages

  • Rebuilt proftpd for new openldap and openssl on Rawhide; needed to add another patch due to upstream's configure script not finding umode_t, and temporarily switched to conditional buildrequires due to problems with finding pathname-based buildrequires in mock

  • Rebuilt nmap for new openldap and openssl on Rawhide, and had to use conditional buildreqs here too

  • Updated perl-HTTP-SimpleLinkChecker to 1.15

  • Updated perl-Tree-DAG_Node to 1.06

Tuesday 11th December 2007

Local Packages

  • Updated proftpd to prevent stripping of debuginfo more cleanly

  • Updated libidn to 1.6.3

  • Updated perl-Test-Exception to 0.25

Wednesday 12th December 2007

Local Packages

  • Updated dovecot to 1.0.9

Monday 17th December 2007

Local Packages

  • Updated nmap to 4.50; this is a big change, and there's a completely new python-based GUI called zenmap

Tuesday 18th December 2007

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-HTTP-Size to 1.13

Wednesday 19th December 2007

Fedora Project

  • Updated imlib to fix a DoS issue caused via a BMP image with a Bits Per Pixel (BPP) value of 0 (Bug #426091, CVE-2007-3568); fix applied in Rawhide, F-8, F-7, and EL-5

Local Packages

  • Updated imlib (only available for EL-5) as per the Fedora package

Thursday 20th December 2007

Local Packages

  • Updated perl-Module-CoreList to 2.13

  • Rebuilt proftpd; the Fedora Rawhide package now includes my horrible, ugly hack to help the configure script find umode_t; I may have to consider doing a clean fix for this and try to get it upstream, along with the mod_cap fix for sending audit messages and the additional open() fixes I have in my package

Friday 21st December 2007

Local Packages

  • Split the Net::DNS::Nameserver part of perl-Net-DNS into a separate subpackage as per Rawhide and upstream's suggestion

  • New package perl-Socket6

  • New package perl-IO-Socket-INET6

Christmas Present

I got a nice new digital camera (a Canon EOS 400D) for Christmas, so it's quite possible that a few more pictures of Leon and Helen (and maybe other subjects too!) will appear here next year...
