A new linux-​f10-​pango port is ready

In the last days I took (and even had) the time to in­stall a VM with Fe­dora 10, up­dated all the pack­ages af­ter in­stall­a­tion, and cre­ated a new linux–f10-​pango port (v 1.28.3). I did this be­cause the port has a se­cur­ity vul­ner­ab­il­ity ac­cord­ing to our VuXML DB and there where more and more re­ports in the last months from users which had a prob­lem with this.

Dur­ing the up­date of the port I no­ticed that the port does not con­tain a FORBIDDEN entry, just portaudit com­plains about it be­cause there is an entry in the VuXML. That is not nice. I was told that the ports slush will be lif­ted soon (I need to bump some PORT­RE­VI­SIONs), this means that I can com­mit the up­date prob­ably to­mor­row, just in time when the new RPM should hit the FreeBSD dis­tri­bu­tion in­fra­struc­ture (MASTER_​SITE_​LOCAL is up­dated once a day from a spe­cific folder in our home dir­ect­or­ies).

Thanks to Luchesar V. ILIEV for the nice writeup of what to in­stall in Fe­dora 10 to be able to build RPMs, and the de­scrip­tion of how to build your own RPM.
