Re: Fedora Core 1 Test Update: gnome-panel-2.4.2-1

Since we are currently working on an update for FC1 we could just as
well do the split for FC1 and propagate it to FC2 for the next test
release. This way you can do some pre-testing from which FC2 will also
benefit.

The BuildRequires should flow into this update anyway. You could diff
the spec file available at http://www.ottolander.nl/gnome-panel/ with
the one from gnome-panel-2.4.0-3 and patch the relevant hunk.

HEAD being the main tree for gnome-panel at gnome.org? Does this mean
these issues are likely to be addressed with this update?

I could gather upstream patches if not, and test these, like I did for
the drawer and auto hide issues (which are now more appropriately solved
with an update to 2.4.2).

I will update my list today, to get you an update on my latest findings.

I don't expect you to spend a lot of time on this, but you could leave
me (and maybe others) some time to do some preparative work, and
possibly solve some more issues, while you spend your time on other
issues. Waiting to push doesn't cost you any of your time.

There is no need to rush an update to the main tree. Interested people
can get the test update, and use that while more issues are addressed.
That is not wasted time as the next release might also benefit from that
(especially in the case of the splitting off of a devel package).

As a side note, how much time would it take to prepare an update of
gnome-user-docs for FC1? Looking at the spec file I would say not too
much. I could prepare the rpm if wanted.

I see you moved
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=112279 to
gnome-user-docs. As I am unable to edit the bug (bugzilla bug which I
haven't reported yet) I point you to
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=84496 . That one
can also be changed to gnome-user-docs (and fixed with and update :) .

Leonard.
