#1363 provenpackager request: zbyszek
Closed None Opened 7 years ago by zbyszek.

Hi,
I'd like to apply for provenpackager privileges. I maintain a bunch of packages [1], with one that takes the majority of time: systemd. I want to be able to fix the occasional systemd-related bug in other packages. Occasionally I want to release combined updates, without getting acls for other package.

I have done reviews of python, c, nodejs packages [2]. I have been a Fedora user since F10 and have been active in the project for the last ~2 years.

IIRC the recent issues in F20 with some daemons not starting due to backported patch in systemd WRT network.target and network-online.target were caused by zbyszek:

  • Tue Jun 17 2014 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek zbyszek@in.waw.pl - 208-18
  • Make SYSV $network be equivalent to network-online, not network target

I hope you'll be more careful and think twice about the possible impact on the distribution when doing changes in other packages. I also hope you'll use the provenpackager privileges wisely and only for changes not requiring further discussion.

Sure, I do most non-rawhide systemd updates nowadays. Sometimes I mess up. Not doing non-trivial updates would be an option, but that would also mean no bugfixes. Systemd codebase evolves quickly, so backporting patches is not risk-free, but judicious backporting and hoping to catch the regressions in testing is the only option I see.

Of course.

+1 from me too, it's good to have people fixing things up across the distribution.

+1 awesome to have someone from systemd upstream helping with the stuff it executes too. :-)

It's been a week and there's more than +3 votes and no negative votes, so you are now a proven packager.

Use your powers wisely.
