Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 713888
pidgin should build against external libgadu, not internal
Last modified: 2012-08-08 10:58:02 EDT
Pidgin currently contains a copy of its own libgadu library internally. Is it not possible to build pidgin against the external libgadu as part of Fedora? This way if there are security flaws found in libgadu, we only have to patch libgadu, and not both.
For the record, I just did a diff between pidgin-2.9.0's libgadu copy and libgadu-0.11.0. The only changes are win32 support. Everything else looks vanilla.
Blocking the tracking bug for this.
pidgin-2.10.0-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.
pidgin-2.10.0-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
pidgin-2.10.0-1.fc14 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 14.
Looking at build logs, you forgot to add BuildRequires: libgadu-devel to both F-14 and F-15 branch updates.
Actually, this change has only been made in F16+. I do not intend to make the change for existing Fedora releases. I issued updates through bodhi for F14-16 at the same time which is why those releases incorrectly reference this bug.
Well, please edit the F-15 and F-14 updates and remove the incorrectly referenced bug, then.

Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing pidgin-2.10.0-1.fc16'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:

This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
