The version of xterm in Fedora is a little old.
Last modified: 2012-01-18 21:04:12 EST
Description of problem: The version of xterm in Fedora is a little old.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 271, according to http://oswatershed.org/pkg/xterm, which is from mid-July 2011. In particular, #276 has workarounds for changes in Fedora packaging.
Steps to Reproduce:
Expected results: the current patch level is #276 (October 10).
By the way, I'm working on #277. The only regression fixed in that is for a change last touched in #270 (before Fedora's current version), so #276 is at least as stable as #271 as far as I can tell.
Fedora 16 has 271. but rawhide is at 276 since Oct 11. Not sure what exactly future on that web page means, but it might need an update.
This bug has version set to rawhide, but I assume you'd like to see it updated in F16 too?
yes - that would address the problem as reported to me
Ok, I'll wait for 277 and prepare an F16 update.
ok - perhaps this week (I have 3-4 items on my to-do list)
I'm still working on #277. There were 2 items that I made no
progress on (both have existing workarounds), and in the
meantime I picked up 2 new Debian reports that I'm working on.
Debian #640464 sounds like a regression introduced by the
event-merging in #274, so I have to investigate that before
I'm done for #277.
Debian #640464 turned out to not be xterm. I spent the
intervening time doing regression builds, and released
xterm-277-1.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.
