Description of problem:
Bittorrent in Fedora Extras for devel is updated to the latest versions, off the 4.1 devel branch for bittorrent. But the version for Fedora Core 4 (and 3) should be updated at least from 4.0.2 to 4.0.4, to pick up some bugfixes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run bittorrent. alternatively, rpm -q bittorrent
Actual Results: Version 4.0.2
Expected Results: Version 4.0.4
I'd been hoping the development phase of 4.1.x wouldn't take as long as it has
done, and simply update the FC3/4 branches to the development version when it
came out of beta. Doesn't look likely to happen any time soon though.
I've put together some 4.0.4 packages for FC3 and FC4 at
http://www.city-fan.org/~paul/extras/bittorrent/ - please give them a try and
see if they're OK (I'd be particularly interested if you're using the
initscripts for the seeder and tracker) I'll push them out into Extras,
Those new packages seem to work for me, although I haven't really tested the
seeder and tracker heavily since I don't use that functionality a lot. The
initscripts seem to be correct and work, though.
I've pushed these packages out in Extras for FC-3 and FC-4 now, and they should
be released later today. I'll close the bug when I see the releases on the mirrors.
