Are there any news on an updated bacula package?
Comment 2 Jarod Wilson 2008-06-09 12:41:13 EDT
ABacula 2.4.0 just released a few days ago...
Comment 3 Jarod Wilson 2008-06-09 16:26:32 EDT
I have reason to believe a bacula 2.4.0 build should hit rawhide in the fairly
near future...

reason to believe, or would like to see? If A.), great.  if B.), I'll consider
Comment 5 Jarod Wilson 2008-06-16 13:40:30 EDT
Reason to believe. I hacked together a 2.4.0 rawhide build that I handed off to
Andreas, which should save him some time when rebasing. It was still in need of
some clean-up though.

nb: I'm not actually a maintainer on the package, just someone who had
need/desire to poke at it for a bit, but Andreas did express desire for a
co-maintainer on irc...
Comment 6 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-06-16 13:53:26 EDT
I see.  Well, I've made the request in pkgdb.  Once it's approved, I'd be more
than happy to take a look at what you've got.  Seems to me F-9 should move to
2.2.8, as perhaps should F-8, and 2.4.0 for rawhide. 
Objections/suggestions/discussion welcome.
Comment 7 Benny Amorsen 2008-07-15 04:06:25 EDT
The fairly near future does not seem to be arriving... It would be very nice if
Fedora wasn't 2 releases behind on Bacula. Jon Ciesla, you're still stuck in
"Awaiting review"?
Comment 8 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-07-15 08:06:18 EDT

I have absolutely no desire to initiate an AWOL Maintainer process, but I am a
bit baffled.  Andreas, would you be so kind as to approve my pkgdb request for
co-maintainership, so I can assist with some of the open bugs for Bacula?
Comment 9 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-07-25 11:02:07 EDT
FYI, I'm now a comaintainer, starting work on 2.2.8 and 2.4.1. . .
Comment 10 Jarod Wilson 2008-07-25 12:33:32 EDT
Its probably not 100% correct, and Andreas had some things he wanted to
integrate, but I have a working 2.4.1 build I've been using for the past month
and a half or so, which you're free to do with as you please if it helps, or
just ignore it, or whatever... :)

Comment 11 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-07-25 12:43:15 EDT
Grabbed.  Thanks!  I'll at very least refer to it, if not rip it off outright. 
With credit given, naturally. :)
Comment 12 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-07-29 10:39:39 EDT
Testing my 2.2.8 build now.  If it looks good I'll build this for rawhide and
F-9 updates-testing, then build and test 2.4.1.

Sorry for the delay, my build machine is not the fastest. . .
