1. rpmlint says:

W: libevent incoherent-version-in-changelog control 1.1a-3.2.1

I'd recommend fixing the broken changelog entry from Jesse Keating's
bump-n-build script.  (Seconded by Jesse.)

2. Dist tag

Appending "%{?dist}" to the Release field is recommended.  Not a
blocker, but it'd be nice.

3. Not latest version

Upstream web site indicates 1.2a is the latest version (released
2006-12-02).  Please evaluate as to whether upgrading might be for the

4. Bugs open:


If you can address the above, I don't see any reason why libevent can't
be approved for merging.

I plan on updated to the latest upstream version...

Err, where?  I'm still seeing 1.2a-1 in CVS.  (Granted, I've been gone for two
weeks, and am still working on catching up on mail -- are we working out of
someplace new?)
Comment 6 Steve Dickson 2007-03-09 13:11:36 EST
hmm.. I seem to be getting the correct code...
$ cvs co rpms/libevent/devel

For the benefit of any outside parties reading this, the changes hadn't been
synched to the external CVS server.  Now that they have...

Looks like you addressed all of my qualms with the package, so I think libevent
is APPROVED for merging.  Thanks!

(Okay, technically we probably still need to verify/close BZ#204990, but you
addressed it, which is what I asked.)

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

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

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.)
