Description Nikola Forró 2017-06-06 09:10:56 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1458040 +++

Glenn Randers-Pehrson filed an issue with Anitya[0] about updating the source URLs for libpng projects and I thought I would bring this to the packagers attention as well. Apparently upstream tarballs are now available via HTTPS (rather than FTP) at:


Or directly from GitHub tags. Apparently the old FTP system is quite overloaded and using a slow DSL connection.

This affects this package, as well as libpng10, libpng12, and libpng15. It looks like it's pretty much the same set of maintainers so I thought I'd start with just the one bug, but I'm happy to duplicate it if the maintainers wish it.

Comment 4 Jan Kurik 2017-08-15 09:15:33 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 27 development cycle.
Changing version to '27'.

Comment 5 Ben Cotton 2018-11-27 18:29:56 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30  Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version' of '27'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 6 Paul Howarth 2018-11-27 18:42:18 UTC
This is fixed in all current Fedora and EPEL releases.
