Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 100644
Make Cambridge better
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:37:39 EDT
Tracking bug for the Cambridge release of Red Hat Linux (beta name: Severn).
Higher priority bugs that don't block the release.
I would like to nominate bug 73627 - tcsh messages always use the same
charset,no matter what the locate settings ask for (bad in Unicode). This bug
causes tcsh messages to be invisible under LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8 (and possibly other
locales) while it's trivial to make sure they are displayed in English under
those locales instead.
Nominate bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=101174
showing sendmail where the CA certs are could directly lead to significantly
more secure email tranactions in a single stroke. This could lead to world
peace and end hunger.
I nominate this bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=83585
SSH's extremely poor handling of password expiration has been a thorn in my side
for a long time. I give accounts to friends who log in infrequently, or who
know how to run pine and a couple of other commands, but don't remember how to
run passwd because they hardly ever do. Some of them even rely on me for email
accounts. That makes this problem even more irritating since they can't even
email me to fix it once it happens. :-(
I nominate Bug 88626 (which I filed against Red Hat Linux 9). Cursor management
simply sucks - it was an advertised feature in RHL9. A redhat-config-cursors
(or a supplement to redhat-config-mouse) should be added.
As an enhancement request, I'm not sure that really would go here; moreover,
that would really need done upstream.
Simple nomination - Bug 102794
I'm all for applications have associated icons (especially when there is a
reference to a non-existent one).
I know RFEs aren't usually added to this list, but I think bug #58699 is worth a
look (defaulting to SSH instead of RSH for CVS access). It's a fairly minor
change, one I think nearly everybody makes anyway, and it's been around for a
while (even created by a RH employee). Nowadays, it's almost more of a bug than
an enhancement request.
The issue there is that it would be a deviation from upstream default behavior
which could confuse some people. Heck, we use gserver for a lot of stuff here. :)
Nominate Bug 104205 which is an easy fix for an end-user confusion problem where
Mozilla does not start properly.
Nominate Bug 91683 where increasingly common PDF files cause gs to use
tremendous amounts of memory and CPU, sometimes to the point of OOM.
Nominate Bug 97747 where spamassassin's bayes database becomes poisoned if you
use spamasssassin -r. The included fix is very rigorously tested.
Nominate Bug 89145 where useradd can segfault in RH9+ due to uninitialized
memory usage. Enrico's simple one line patch is very rigorously tested by me.
Some added; gs one not added as the problem is not really quantified as to
what's broken yet.
Nominate Bug 104299 which fixes the Japanese input problem in gaim.
Could you add Bug 88802 ?
Necessary easy-fix for bluetooth integration.
Cambridge shipped, closing.
