Bug for 2.3.3 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=831180
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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained.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:
Pretty awesome that fedora just WONTFIXed a remotely exploitable vulnerability.
It shouldn't do that. The EOL bot should be smarter than this.
This is most definitely _not_ fixed yet. I'm not sure if Andreas is maintaining this or not anymore, but it would be nice if he could perhaps chime in on fixing it.
I agree. The auto close bot and it's handling of stuff is less than suboptimal.
I have a local build which _should_ be fixing the security issue but when I test stream relaying it seems to indicate there's a regression.
Haven't gotten around to looking into this however.
But upgrade is coming...

As upstream we'd be very interested to hear about this. So far we're not aware of any bugs/regressions in this area.
