RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

You should be able to drop all 4 patches from conman-0.2.7-15.
In fact, conman-0.2.7-hack-around-overflow-issue.patch is wrong and
should be dropped regardless.  I noted that with the patch's author
last year but didn't realized he added it to Red Hat's rpm until now.
I was finally able to see the Coverity Scan results back in Nov when
I found out their scan results are free for open-source projects.



Comment 4 Ondrej Vasik 2017-03-27 07:02:24 UTC
Is this really request for rebase of conman in RHEL 7? Is there some good reason behind it? Usually we don't rebase components in released major version of RHEL unless there is some good reason for it.

As for Fedora, I see Dan Horak already built 0.2.8 in Rawhide - https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=866738 , adding him to CC of this bugzilla. Dan, can you please make sure if Chris's comments are addressed by your rebase in Rawhide? Thanks!

Comment 5 Dan Horák 2017-03-27 08:04:30 UTC
My initial intention on the Fedora side was cleaning up the spec file (mainly for bug #1244218), but because there was a new release available with a number of fixes mentioned in conman's release notes I've rebased it as well. The Fedora version is now clean upstream version, so except some packaging differences it's what Ben/Chris ask for. Although freeipmi is still 1.5.4 in Fedora while 1.5.5 is available, it might be what Chris means in comment #2.

Comment 7 Ben Woodard 2017-03-27 16:10:59 UTC
The reasons for the rebase are:
1) one of the patches currently being applied introduces a bug
2) the other patches are part of the the 0.2.8 release. LLNL which is upstream made sure that our fixes were incorporated -- except when they were wrong and introduced additional bugs.
3) There are other performance issues that have shown up in the 0.2.7 release which were addressed in the 0.2.8 release.
