Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427529
Please update to upstream version 2.6
Last modified: 2008-02-04 10:42:00 EST
At the time of this writing libconfuse-2.5-3 is the newest package in F-8 and
http://www.nongnu.org/confuse/ says that the new libconfuse-2.6 release is to be
found at http://bzero.se/confuse/ instead of at
http://download.savannah.nongnu.org/releases/confuse/ (for some reason).
Hrm... Two issues with the new version...
1) it doesn't actually build for me
2) the license changed
The first is definitely a problem. At a glance, looks like probably just a
compiler flag that needs tweaking so we don't treat warnings as errors. The
second just needs a bit of research to make sure the new license conditions are
okay for Fedora.
Snippet from build failure:

Created attachment 292382 [details]
Apply patch in F-8/ directory: libconfuse-2.6-0.2
This is how I would do it... and it seems to build:
I have not checked that any of the libconfuse dependencies work with this
ISC appears to be the correct value for the License: field, and its just fine
with legal. Committing and building for rawhide shortly...
Built for rawhide, building for F-8 now.
