RFE: upgrade to recent version
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
Description of problem:
Version 0.11 was released 21 May 2007 - please could you push an updated package
for F-7 - geany-0.10.1-1.fc7 is the latest package I see for F-7.
hmm yeah i'll do that this weekend. Do you maintain packages for fedora? I
will probably be orphaning this one as I don't use it much anymore and have
other things to deal with. If you are interested let me know.
Hi - I do maintain some fedora packages, but I didn't want to just go around
updating other people's packages - thought it polite to file a RFE. If you like,
I'm happy to co-maintain it with you - am reluctant to take on sole
responsibility straight away though - good to have another pair of eyes looking
Have updated spec file and uploaded new source tarball and pushed a package
build - all for the devel branch only. Building now, will look at it in the morning.
Updated packages built for devel and F-7. Have submitted an request to push to
updates-testing for F-7, although was surprised that would work. Have submitted
a request via the package database to add my name for commits etc (not sure this
Updates have been built for a while now, but not pushed to the repos as you
haven't accepted my Koji/Bodhi requests for co-maintainership - could you have a
look at that when you get chance.
By Koji/Bodhi, I meant package database, of course :)
so i havent been keeping track and I have no idea how to do that. I'll try and
figure that out and flip the right bits at some point. Sorry about that.
alrighty, i think i did that right so you should be good to go.
I didn't want to open a new bug for this (probably should have) but geany 0.12
was released a little while ago and some updates packages would be cool.
Problem is, Rawhide is in feature freeze, so we can't add geany 0.12 there, and
updating the F-7 version would then break the upgrade path from F-7 to F-8. So I
think it has to wait until after the release of F-8...

Ah, I forgot the feature freeze ;)
Post-F8 update sounds good.
You can pull 0.12 packages directly from Koji, if you fancy testing them:
Awesome, I'll do that.
I see that it has been tagged as an update-candidate for F7. Any idea if it
will be accepted?

All packages built with koji for released branches are initially tagged as
update-candidate, and then the packager requests that it is tagged
updates-testing to make it appear in the updates-testing repo, and then later
tagged as updates to be pushed into the updates repo.
I won't request it be tagged for updates-testing yet though, as that will break
the F-7 -> F-8 updgrade path.
Once F-8 is out of the door I'll push it to the repos.
geany-0.12-4.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update geany'
geany-0.12-4.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
