[F17] request port basket 188.8.131.52 from EPEL 6 to Fedora 17 (need a small patch since gcc47)
Last modified: 2012-09-24 08:22:46 EDT
Description of problem:
I just steal src rpm from
Add this line into '%setup' section, compile passed and it works perfect.
sed -i \
'/#include <kdebug.h>/s|$|\n#include <unistd.h>\n#include <sys/types.h>|' \
Or you can make a small patch.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
missing in repo.
Steps to Reproduce:
No basket in F17 repo
basket goes into F17 repo or even rawhide
The kde 4 version of basket 1.8.xxx is still in beta stage. Please keep this old KDE 3 software in repo utile kde 4 or 5 version goes stable.
I could do that. But there is one small problem of concept here: while I am interested in having it in EPEL, I do not have the resources to care for its Fedora counterparts. I do not think that it is correct to push a package just for the sake of having it, without having a maintainer for it.
I use bakset (kde3 version) to store my huge notes (git enabled) everyday.
Will you take it if I take QE work of this package?
I am no Fedora QE yet. If needed, I can follow procedure to apply one.
If you want some one who is using Fedora to take package maintainer work, maybe I can apply for it (no sure whether my boss allow me to do).
Manuel, please check 'Need additional information from' below the comment box to send a needinfo to me when you need reply. I got thousands of emails sent from this bugzilla.
I have no idea what "QE" means but I can only repeat what I have said before: I am more than willing to take care of the EPEL branches but we need a different maintainer for the Fedora branches. I do not have the time to look over the shoulder of someone else and verify his/her work so a person who is already a Fedora maintainer would be needed.
QE == 'Quality Engineer'
I have no idea how Fedora team handle this. I will close this bug as won't fix.
I am OK to keep a personal compile rpm.
If any Fedora maintainer want it in repo, reopen or clone to new one.
