Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
FC3 and FC4 are currently maintained by Fedora Legacy for security fixes only.
howl is currently obsolete and has been replaced by avahi in the still fully
supported versions of Fedora Core, FC5 and FC6. Since this is not a security
bug, it will not be fixed. avahi has a substantial amount of changes from howl,
so please retest this bug against a newer install of Fedora Core if possible.
If a similar bug is present in FC5 or FC6, please reopen the bug and change the
component to avahi. Thanks!
