This week, I did it! The weekly report is out on time again 🎉️! It is a bit on the shorter side, because I’ve been really busy with course work for university and administrative tasks for the Stewardship SIG.

fedora updates

golang packages

I updated the Syncthing package for fedora to the latest version, 1.1.1. It features a few bug-fixes, and introduces some new features - for example, support for TLS 1.3.

package version release changes
syncthing 1.1.1 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28 1.1.0 → 1.1.1

ruby packages

Again this week, I pushed updates for two of my ruby gem packages to fedora. Both the latest versions of the packages for jekyll-feed and jekyll-toc feature only minor changes and / or fixes.

package version release changes
rubygem-jekyll-feed 0.12.1 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28 0.12.0 → 0.12.1
rubygem-jekyll-toc 0.12.0 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28 0.11.0 → 0.12.0

elementary(*) packages

I updated the fedora packaging for the Sequeler SQL client to the latest version, which brings improvements around the pagination of results for queries that return a lot of data.

package version release changes
sequeler 0.6.9 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29 0.6.8 → 0.6.9

The latest version of the Display plug for Switchboard is also on its way to the fedora repositories. It features more robust handling of DPI changes and minor user interface enhancements.

package version release changes
switchboard-plug-display 2.1.7 1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29, 1.fc28 2.1.6 → 2.1.7

Stewardship SIG packages

As mentioned last week, I’ve founded a new Special Interest Group (SIG) for fedora. This week, I started looking into fixing some issues with the packages that we are maintaining. The first task was an easy one - bringing the mchange-commons Java package up to date again after it had failed to build since fedora 29 (due to the usage of the unversioned python command during its build process).

package version release changes
mchange-commons 0.2.11 8.fc31, 8.fc30, 7.fc29 fixed FTBFS for f29+
