Re: FE package status Thu Feb 2 2006

Using the parseBZbugList.pl script available on the UsefulScripts wiki page :-)
(sorry, couldn't resist...)

Basically:
 1. extract all package names from owners.list
 2. extract all available packages from the devel repo
 3. subtract 1 - 2 and print it (if it's not orphaned in this case)...

Could do.  My idea was to make sure devel is in good shape, as FC5 is around 
the corner...

Yes, I could make two lists:
 - not in latest, not in devel
 - present in latest, but not in devel

> Several things sort of jump out as odd... initng  is in the list why?

Because it's in the owners.list file:
$ grep initng owners.list
Fedora Extras|initng|A full replacement of SysVinit|daner964 student liu se|extras-qa fedoraproject org|

> This hasn't even passed review and I dont see it in the owners list

Well it is in mine:
$ cvs stat

I started a discarded packages list, also available on the wiki page.

No idea, but they are in owners.list

No idea.

> wxPython is in the list why?

'cause it's in owners.list.

Yes, I guess it's a good candidate for my discarded package list...

dunno.

Thanks for your comments.
