Re: is mgetty being maintained?

I originally posted this on "fedora-list", but was nudged to here as a more appropriate list for this issue: :-)

mgetty on FC6 is at version 1.1.33-9 : 2005-04-10

I opened a new bug against it (
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=232522 ) and in
doing some research to find the source code discovered there have been
two releases since then. Even the most recent is more than a yearold
now, but still not available via yum update.

1.1.34 : 2005-11-30
1.1.35 : 2006-02-22

Is mgetty still being maintained as a Fedora component? Is it deprecated
and there is a replacement I should use instead?

I was going to see if I can fix the problem, but for all I know it is
already fixed in one of these newer releases.

How do I request that mgetty be updated in FC6? I think the package
maintainer has gone walk about so opening a new bugzilla report seems
ineffective: Another bug (
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=217844 ), created
2006-11-30 has never even been replied to. :-(

Which version will be in FC7? I can wait for FC7, that is only a month
or two away now.

Thank you.

I got the source code for 1.1.35 and based on reading the C code, verified the bug I found has not been fixed yet.

So, what I'd like to do is get the source for the older version as used by Fedora Core 6 and test a change... How/where can I get the source for the version in Fedora 6 without downloading the entire CD of source code? Is there a way I can just d/l the individual package and "make" it?

I would do this with version1.1.35, but the configuration of the Makefile is a little beyond me at this point. :-( I'm hoping I can get the current FC6 one and all that will be set up correctly... then it's just a matter of changing the code to fix the bug I found. THAT I can do. :-) Then I'll attach the diff file to my bugzilla report :-)

Thank you.
