We can.  Is there a reason you're looking for 1.2.0?  There have been a lot of commits since 1.2.0, and if we're going to upgrade mtd-utils for a good reason, we should probably use the latest.

Comment 2 Robert P. J. Day 2008-12-23 13:07:03 UTC
Not a problem with me, I just thought the Fedora packaging protocol had a preference for official, versioned releases as opposed to snapshots.  A more recent snapshot would suit me just fine.

Ok, but why other than "because there is something newer"?  We've been having a rather long discussion in the project lately about superfluous updates to stable releases, so having some reason as to why it would be a good idea to do this seems nice.

Fair enough.  There are noticeable enhancements in the UBI portion of that package, which is something I was interested in playing with.  But I'm surprised that 1.2.0 isn't already in the update pipeline for F9, given that it seems to have been packaged quite some time ago:

Or am I misreading that?

Heh, no you aren't.  I forgot David updated it in CVS a while ago.  I guess he didn't submit a bodhi update.

We can probably just do 1.2.0 in F-9, and I'll look at getting something newer in rawhide.

That would work for me just fine, thanks.
