Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-03-07 00:10:59 UTC
Slapping an FE-Legal block on this package. This package can't go into F7 until
224627 is properly resolved.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2007-11-05 01:42:07 UTC
Removed FE-Legal since bug 224627 has been resolved,
and added the later bug to FE-Legal for completeness

Comment 3 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-11-27 20:22:06 UTC
I assume you guys have directly communication with emacs's upstream.

Could you guys please ask upstream to update their
* vhdl-mode
* verilog-mode

I would be nice that to see these be fixed upstream so that I can obsolete emacs-verilog-mode on rawhide.

Comment 4 Karel Klíč 2009-12-10 15:37:59 UTC
It seems that verilog mode in Emacs is up to date:

The vhdl-mode in Emacs is old, so someone who uses and understands this mode should update it. Please feel free to open a new bug (RFE) about it.

Comment 5 Chitlesh GOORAH 2009-12-10 16:17:59 UTC
I have already done so


However, I'm hoping someone else to do it instead of me since first I'm using emacs since a week, second I'm crowded with huge amount of workload for FEL.

The vhdl-mode is heavily targeting proprietary vhdl simulators while, we have opensource vhdl simulators on fedora : e.g ghdl and freehdl. I've created a patch: 


There are a few more improvements which need to be made. But I don't have much experience with emacs to get that fixed. Upstream is enforcing compatibility with older versions. The help of an experienced emacs user would be appreciated

Mass reassigning all merge reviews to their component. For more details, see this FESCO ticket:


If you don't know what merge reviews are about, please see:


How to handle this bug is left to the discretion of the package maintainer.

Comment 7 Jan Kurik 2015-07-15 15:26:45 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 23 development cycle.
Changing version to '23'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 23 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 23 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 10:18:17 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '23'.

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 23 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 9 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 11:56:06 UTC
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
