Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2011-04-26 17:35:34 UTC
Moving systemd service RFEs to rawhide.

At this point, it is not appropriate in the Fedora 15 cycle to add these. Furthermore, at this point, we are still finalizing the packaging guidelines to handle SysV -> systemd upgrades.

We therefore request:
- wait until there are packaging guidelines (this will be announced on the devel list). This ensures that upgrades will work smoothly and we/you won't have to do multiple sets of changes.
- work on these sorts of changes for Fedora 16 where necessary, not Fedora 15, as we're trying to fix things for release.
- do *not* change a service from SysV to systemd in an existing release (such as Fedora 15), as this is the sort of behavior change that goes against our update policy, documented as https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy

Comment 2 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2011-06-29 10:14:28 UTC
What's the current status on this?

We need this in rawhide as soon as possible unless ofcourse you guys want to
block alpha.. 


Comment 3 Jóhann B. Guðmundsson 2011-07-18 09:11:17 UTC
I'm going to start initiating non-responsive packaging policy 

Maintainer not listed on vacation and no response et all from maintainer on this bug report note this component is part of default live cd thus will end up blocking the alpha release..

Dbus enabled unit.

Note that you will need add enable-dbus to /etc/dnsmasq.conf

starts and stops cleanly

Spec file patch for dnsmasq

After speaking with Dan in irc we should not use the dbus unit hence deprecating it

Comment 6 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2011-08-22 18:31:01 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
