After the pretty boring report last week, this one brings only one update for an elementary package and one minor python package fix. But a big part of what I have been doing this week was working on a lot of Java packages – both to allow us to drop some unused dependencies, and to fix builds before the mass rebuild for fedora 31 happened at the end of the week.
The latest release of the Session indicator for Wingpanel contains fixes for some minor issues. Additionally, Logout and Shutdown dialog windows now close when pressing the Esc key. Updates with this version will be available on all current fedora releases soon.
|wingpanel-indicator-session||2.2.5||1.fc31, 1.fc30, 1.fc29||2.2.4 → 2.2.5|
I’ve also fixed builds of the
txtorcon python package, which started to fail
to build with version 19.2.1 of
twisted. Turns out that this uncovered old
issues in the unit tests.
|python-txtorcon||19.0.0||5.fc31||fix compatibility with twised 19.2.1|
Stewardship SIG updates
This week, we were again able to put some work into the packages maintained by the Stewardship SIG.
First, we worked on reducing package dependencies by disabling support for the Groovy scripting language where it was unused.
|jackson||1.9.11||16.fc31||remove groovy 1.8 dependency|
|testng||6.14.3||8.fc31||disable groovy support|
|maven-script-interpreter||1.2||3.fc31||disable groovy support|
|maven-invoker-plugin||1.10||10.fc31||disable groovy support|
|apache-commons-jci||1.1||9.fc31||disable groovy support|
I also made a small change to the
openjpa package to fix its builds on fedora
|openjpa||2.4.1||11.fc31||regenerate BRs to fix builds|
We were also able to push two minor version updates, which were already available from modular branches. We hope to be able to keep normal fedora packages and modular branches from diverging too far.
|apache-commons-collections4||4.4||1.fc31||4.1 → 4.4|
|maven-wagon||3.3.3||1.fc31||3.2.0 → 3.3.3|
I also submitted some changes to packages to fix build issues they had on
rawhide in preparation for the mass rebuild. In
apache-commons-vfs, we removed
the unused support for hadoop filesystems (because hadoop is broken in rawhide).
xstream, we disabled the unused support for the Hibernate persistence
library (which is not installable on rawhide right now), and to fix builds of
lz4-java, all that was needed was to add a previously missing build dependency
|apache-commons-vfs||2.1||15.fc31||disable hadoop support to fix FTBFS issue|
|lz4-java||1.3.0||12.fc31, 12.fc30, 11.fc29||require gcc to fix FTBFS issues|
|xstream||126.96.36.199||3.fc31||disable hibernate support|
Another change we made to the
apache-commons-vfs package a few days later was
to drop the unused support for FTP, which allows us to drop the broken
mina-ftpserver package again.
|apache-commons-vfs||2.1||16.fc31||disable ftp support|
