Description Fedora Release Engineering 2020-02-06 20:27:09 UTC
xvkbd failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide/f32

For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix xvkbd at your earliest convenience and set the bug's status to
ASSIGNED when you start fixing it. If the bug remains in NEW state for 8 weeks,
xvkbd will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 33,
xvkbd will be retired, if it still fails to build.

Version of the -fno-common patch for 4.0

You are welcome.  I prefer not to get involved in a version upgrade, but will leave that to you.  The patch for 3.9 does not apply cleanly to 4.0, so I am attaching a version of the patch that does.  I sent the 4.0 version of the patch upstream.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 32 development cycle.
Changing version to 32.

Comment 7 Fedora Release Engineering 2020-02-16 04:24:14 UTC
Dear Maintainer,

your package has not been built successfully in 32. Action is required from you.

If you can fix your package to build, perform a build in koji, and either create
an update in bodhi, or close this bug without creating an update, if updating is
not appropriate [1]. If you are working on a fix, set the status to ASSIGNED to
acknowledge this. Following the latest policy for such packages [2], your package
will be orphaned if this bug remains in NEW state more than 8 weeks.

A week before the mass branching of Fedora 33 according to the schedule [3],
any packages not successfully rebuilt at least on Fedora 31 will be
retired regardless of the status of this bug.
