Comment 1 Alex Lancaster 2010-02-20 07:17:56 UTC
I am aware of this and I am just as annoyed as you.  I have reported it on bodhi because the dep breakage was caused by the xulrunner API bump, not by any changes by me, see:


It appears that the maintainer of xulrunner which broke the deps wasn't able to rebuild Miro because of some problems with finding the package-config .pc file in the libsepol-devel package see:




and wasn't prepared to investigate and/or wait on pushing the xulrunner update to fix Miro (downstream maintainers don't necessarily get any notification that their packages are going to be rebuilt for security issues).  I am looking into this right now.

Comment 2 Alex Lancaster 2010-02-20 08:29:44 UTC
OK, tracked this down, it's a bug in libsepol which is fixed in a pending update (see bug #566441).  I filed a rel-eng ticket to get this in the F-12 buildroot: https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/3425 so I can rebuild Miro without having to wait until libsepol goes to stable.
