Description Honza Horak 2022-01-05 10:38:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Today in Fedora, we have minizip-compat-1.2.x (coming from zlib component) and minizip-3.0.x (a separate component which is actually minizip-ng in upstream).

There is a discussion on github about what names for those projects are best to use, so once there is a conclusion, this bug is supposed to track the changes done in Fedora.

This package has changed maintainer in Fedora. Reassigning to the new maintainer of this component.

Hello all,

Thanks @hhorak for this ticket :)

Since a moment, it is really clear, original code/place and NG code/place.

To have a perfect compatibility with all, to do not break and do not mix, the goal is to have (like other distos):
- zlib
- minizip

and NG versions:
- zlib-ng
- minizip-ng

Original code is always developed, you can see here:

zlib master branch:
- https://github.com/madler/zlib/
- https://github.com/madler/zlib/tree/master/contrib/minizip

zlib develop branch:
- https://github.com/madler/zlib/tree/develop
- https://github.com/madler/zlib/tree/develop/contrib/minizip

Specified by @hhorak, you can see talk here:
- https://github.com/zlib-ng/minizip-ng/issues/358

Thanks a lot in advance.

PS: There are release updates.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 36 development cycle.
Changing version to 36.

Comment 4 Honza Horak 2022-03-14 14:02:30 UTC
Clearing needinfo, it's not clear what the info missing was here. Anyway, leaving the next action on the Matej, the assignee.
