Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2008-05-02 14:43:23 UTC
This seems to be a relevant upstream commit:

http://sipp.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/sipp?view=rev&revision=427

However, as noted by Nico Golde in Debian bug report, there are probably other
similar issues in get_remote_ip_media() and get_remote_ipv6_media():

Comment 2 Tomas Hoger 2008-05-02 14:44:14 UTC
Peter, I've noticed that size of SRPM jumped from ~200kB to ~9.5Mb between 3.0
and 3.1, because upstream tarball now includes sources for libs sipp depends on.
 As we probably don't need them on Fedora, would it make sense to remove them
from upstream tarball?

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2008-05-10 13:49:08 UTC
sipp-3.1-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
