Re: fedora-devel not up-to-date with fedora-yarrow-updates? (please fix)

Along similar lines to my other response, I see the point you are making,
however, for the packages listed, do you see any reason why they will *not*
eventually (whenever somebody finds time) be sent to fedora-devel?

Specifically:

   bash-2.05b-33                 bash-2.05b-34
   binutils-2.14.90.0.6-3        binutils-2.14.90.0.6-4
   gnupg-1.2.3-1                 gnupg-1.2.3-2
   mktemp-1.5-6                  mktemp-1.5.1-1
   nss_ldap-207-3                nss_ldap-207-6
   postfix-2.0.11-5              postfix-2.0.16-1
   sed-4.0.8-1                   sed-4.0.8-2

For bash, binutils, gnupg, nss_ldap, and sed, only the package number has
changed. Are you suggesting that the newer package has any possibility of
*not* making it into FC2?

For mktemp, and postfix, the updates directory has *newer* versions of the
software. Are you suggesting that the newer versions have any possibility
of *not* making it into FC2?

I fully understand and support the claim that a more recently built version
of sed-4.0.8 should not make it directly to fedora-devel, if fedora-devel is
currently hosting a less recently built version of sed-4.1. None of the
packages I listed, though, fall into this category. Each of the packages I
listed have *newer* versions or packages, under FC1-updates. In 'sort' order,
FC1 > FC2, for these packages.

Again, I don't expect reliability or security fixes. I just *want to test
against the latest (greatest or otherwise)*... :-)

Right now that means making sure I have the latest fedora-devel, and then
making sure I have the latest fedora-yarrow-updates. (Where latest means
latest version/package number, not latest build)

Cheers,
mark
