Description Matthew Harmsen 2013-05-09 16:58:17 UTC
So that future development can flow from upstream to downstream (rather than downstream to upstream), a table which displays the various patch discrepancies has been constructed at http://directory.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mod_nss#mod_nss_Patches_Compatibility_Matrix.

Most, if not all, of the following downstream patches must first be ported to upstream platforms so that this effort may be realized: 
* mod_nss-PK11_ListCerts_2.patch
* mod_nss-array_overrun.patch
* mod_nss-clientauth.patch
* mod_nss-no_shutdown_if_not_init_2.patch
* mod_nss-proxyvariables.patch
* mod_nss-tlsv1_1.patch
* mod_nss-sslmultiproxy.patch

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2013-12-21 15:46:47 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '18'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be 
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is 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  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.

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.

Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2014-02-05 23:20:53 UTC
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 9 Matthew Harmsen 2014-11-14 18:54:27 UTC
Not quite sure how/why this bug was marked as WONTFIX?

All of the downstream patches were ported to Fedora 18 (which is now EOL), Fedora 19, and Fedora 20.

Additionally, per 'Bugzilla Bug #980266 - Consolidate all patches into upstream source', for Fedora 21, 'mod_nss' has been re-based from 1.0.8 --> 1.0.10.

Re-closing this bug as CLOSED UPSTREAM.
