  • this week in fedora (2019w11)

    Taking the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’m going to claim that this was another pretty average week. There’s some build fixes for fedora rawhide, some updated ruby, python, and elementary packages - both for official fedora packages, and for packages that I maintain in my COPR repositories.

  • this week in fedora (2019w10)

    There’s something for everybody in this report. Bug fixes for elementary applications, packaging fixes for Pantheon desktop components, updated ruby packages, the latest version of Syncthing, etc. The “Pantheon Desktop” Change for fedora 30 also looks like it will make it (albeit with slightly reduced scope, compared to the initial proposal).

  • this week in fedora (2019w09)

    Here’s another average week’s worth of fedora updates. Theres some elementary package updates, one python update, and so on. Pretty boring stuff. There’s just a bit more noise than usual, because fedora 30 has been branched off from rawhide - so, where there usually were one or two updates per package, there are now two or three (or four).

  • this week in fedora (2019w08)

    Another average week is over. I updated some elementary packages, and some python packages for fedora. I also tagged a new prerelease version of the Pantheon session settings in preparation for fedora 30.

  • this week in fedora (2019w07)

    This weeks brings a bunch of updates for elementary packages, but mostly minor bug-fix releases.

  • this week in fedora (2019w06)

    A quiet week results in a short report: I pushed some minor updates for elementary packages, updated the syncthing package to the latest version, and hopefully fixed issues around using the Paper icon theme with flatpak applications on fedora.

  • this week in fedora (2019w05)

    Last week, I’ve pushed a multitude of various packages to both the official fedora repositories, and my COPR repositories. They include fixes for elementary desktop applications (Photos and Files) and components (Wingpanel indicators and Switchboard plugs). There were also some updates for “made for elementary” applications, and miscellaneous python and golang package updates.

  • this week in fedora (2019w04)

    This week, I’ve again worked on getting some python packages in fedora up to speed before I can submit poetry as a package to fedora. Also, the usual miscellaneous updates for elementary and “made for elementary” packages were pushed to the appropriate repositories.

  • this week in fedora (2019w03)

    This week, I’ve added two new python packages to fedora in preparation for packaging poetry, and pushed other minor updates for some packages. There were also two updates for the Appcenter packages I maintain in my COPR repository (alias and Spice-up).

  • this week in fedora (2019w02)

    This past week, I brought you the 1.0.0 release of syncthing, and also some minor updates for elementary packages - mostly to prepare for the next version of the vala compiler.

  • this week in fedora (2019w01)

    There are just two minor updates this week, both for elementary projects. I updated the elementary icon theme to the latest upstream release, which brings some updated icons, and appcenter, where the new version brings new categories and updated graphics.

  • this week in fedora (2018w52)

    Due to the holidays and a short vacation, this was a pretty quiet week. The only new update is – finally – the latest version of syncthing.

  • this week in fedora (2018w51)

    This has been a busy week. But most importantly, I’ve now gone through the entire backlog of outstanding updates, and everything is on its way to the stable fedora repositories! This includes an updated granite package (with a downstream patch to make sure no third-party applications unexpectedly break), and all the delayed package updates that were held up by this.

  • this week in fedora (2018w50)

    Another week, another batch of updates and fixes. There’s new features for the sequeler SQL client, improved settings plugs for switchboard, bug fixes for the Date & Time indicator for wingpanel, and first steps toward fixing the broken window menus for applications in gala.

  • this week in fedora (2018w49)

    There were only a few elementary-related updates for fedora this week, all of them fixing some small issues or improving upon the current behavior, but no major changes stand out.

  • this week in fedora (2018w48)

    This week, I pushed various small improvements for my elementary packages, including fixes for small annoyances, and bug-fix updates. I also updated one of my ruby and golang packages to the latest version, respectively. The Magic Wormhole file transfer client is now available on fedora, thanks to some very quick package reviews. Also, fedora 27 has reached its end-of-life on Friday.

  • this week in fedora (2018w47)

    I’ve been working on getting the magic-wormhole file transfer tool packaged for fedora, and this week, I’ve started to land the first of its dependencies.

  • this week in fedora (2018w46)

    This was a pretty average week, with some bug-fix and feature updates, and a (well-announced) SONAME bump necessitating some rebuilds in fedora rawhide. Also, in preparation for fedora 27 reaching its end-of-life, I’ve stopped pushing updates and disabled nightly builds for this fedora release.

  • this week in fedora (2018w45)

    This week, I mostly pushed only small bug-fix releases to fedora and my COPR repositories – among them, an updated “vocal” podcast player, the latest version of Syncthing, and a bug-fix release of Jekyll.

  • this week in fedora (2018w44)

    Over the course of the last seven days, several post-“Juno” bug-fix releases have been tagged by for elementary applications, and I’ve submitted the new versions as updates to fedora. I was also finally able to track down a nasty bug, and to update the SignOn stack on fedora 30.

  • this week in fedora (2018w43)

    The past week was a slow one. There were no new upstream releases to package up. But, I’ve fixed the fallout from the forge and go macro changes in fedora rawhide.

  • this week in fedora (2018w42)

    Juno is here! The latest version of elementaryOS was released this week, codenamed 5.0 “Juno”. This means that there’s a lot of updated packages for fedora, too. In addition to that, there’s the usual assortment of updated ruby and golang packages.

  • this week in fedora (2018w41)

    This week I updated a good amount of elementary packages to the latest upstream releases — just like in the previous weeks. Development for the stable release of elementaryOS 5.0 is finally finishing up, and the official announcement is expected soon. I also updated the usual miscellaneous collection of golang and ruby packages.

  • this week in fedora (2018w40)

    This week I updated many packages for elementary projects to new versions, bringing mainly updated translations, build system improvements, and bug fixes. I also pushed some updates for ruby gems to fedora, some of them also to stable fedora releases for security and bug fixes.

  • this week in fedora (2018w37)

    This week I updated some of my ruby and golang packages, some “made for elementary” applications, and syncthing and its GTK+ GUI to the latest upstream releases, and fixed running the Pantheon session on fedora 29 and later by introducing a mutter328 compatibility package.

  • this week in fedora (2018w36)

    This week I updated some fedora packages for versions released upstream, and also updated one of the packages which I picked up when they were orphaned this week.

  • call for help: Pantheon on fedora 29

    Update: I’ve now built a mutter328 compat package for fedora 29 and rawhide, and – pending some testing – it will be a good short- to mid-term solution for the mutter 3.30 compatibility issue.

  • this week in fedora (2018w35)

    Wow, this has been a busy week. There are two new packages, three renamed-updated packages, five updates for elementary packages, one updated golang package snapshot build, one updated ruby gem package, and 34 (!) golang packages updated to make use of newer packaging tools. Also, I took advantage of my new “provenpackager” powers for the first time.
