Mass rebuild of Extras packages for FC6? (was: Re: Mass rebuild of core packages coming soon)



Hi

I suppose a lot of people won't like the topic I'll bring up with this
mail but we IMHO should discuss this nevertheless.

Change the last point to

3) get all packages build with the new and reduced set of packages
installed in the default mock buildroot

and add

4) make sure all packagers/contributors are still around just a we did
during the mass-rebuild for FC5


Now it makes four good reasons to build all Extras packages in devel
before FC6.

Opinions? And if your opinion is "No mass-rebuild of Extras for FC6"
then please give some ideas how to realize the goals stated above
without a mass-rebuild.

CU

BTW, does anyone have details on the technical background of "New
toolset feature to speed up dynamic lib linking by 50%~" ?
