gource in Fedora

Posted: Feb 23, 2010, 11:11

My first package submission was finally completed a few days ago with everything from ticket overload, personal issues to my US trip making sure that I had little time to get things done on time. I had started this in the first week of December and it took all of 2 months and some days to get my stuff together and put out an rpm package for gource. It is finally done now and you can install gource on your Fedora 12 box (or later if you're nutty like me) with just a

~# yum install gource

I've built gource only for F-12 and later since F-11 does not have the required version of ftgl. That is OK I guess since F-11 is way too old anyway ;)


FOSS.in/2009: Day 1

Got up late and rushed through my bath and breakfast. I realize that I did not talk about the hotel I am living in. Well, the bed is too small, the toilet seat is too tall and the bathroom in general is quite claustrophobic. But otherwise it is a really good, clean hotel.

OK, so we made our way to the venue and were pretty much holed up inside auditorium 3. I managed to get an app packaged as I mentioned in my past post. The upstream dev acaudwell immediately responded to my patch to update version number in configure.ac, so that hurdle is out of the way too.

The Fedora team had a blast at night with food and beer and managed to rake up a huge dinner bill. I missed out on it since I was in the mood to sit and hack on something. Well, I did not. I ended up discussing a bunch of things with Ram2 and Amit Sethi.

Oh yeah, and met up with Philip too after a long time, so that was a bit of a ayttm team reunion sans Piotr :)
