Comment 1 Vincent Danen 2011-01-15 03:06:44 UTC
Created gnash tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-all [bug 669852]

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2011-01-15 10:13:51 UTC
This doesn't affect our binary packages at all, does it? Only the SRPMs are affected, when people rebuild them in a live system or an insecure chroot.

Comment 3 Vincent Danen 2011-01-15 16:28:05 UTC
That's exactly right.  So I wouldn't go out of the way to fix this, but would fix the next time gnash is built.  Thanks.
