Jima (jima@beer.tclug.org) said he'll look into doing this once he picks up
maintainership of the package, if the current maintainer (Oliver) is truly AWOL.
Comment 2 John Ellson 2006-09-16 09:55:11 EDT
Thank you Jima for taking over from Oliver.

Please don't bother anymore with graphviz-cairo.  Graphviz-2.10 should be
released in the next few weeks and has the cairo features in the core package.

What you could do though is do the requested rebuild of graphviz-2.8 for FC6?
I also tried to reach Oliver for this without success.
Comment 3 Jima 2006-09-29 16:47:05 EDT
As expressed above by the upstream maintainer, this bug will be resolved upstream.

John, as you've likely noticed, I've taken over graphviz maintenance in Extras
(with Oliver's blessings, fortunately) and fixed the bug in FC5/FC6 (and
introduced another...oops!).  I look forward to the 2.10 release.  Thanks for
playing well with downstream. :-)
