One library to rule them all: unbundling workshop

Fedora policy regarding mandatory removal of bundled libraries and other components in existing and prospective packages was relaxed last year. While it is now acceptable to have bundled components in a package and still pass review, it is still worth making an effort to unbundle as much as possible, even if upstream doesn't support it, mainly for security reasons. This workshop will teach you how to unbundle a library from a package and work with upstreams to add support for using the system version. Participants are encouraged to bring their own cases to the table and are expected to know how to:
  • create an RPM package compliant with the Fedora Packaging Guidelines
  • read source code
  • create patches
  • be diplomatic :)
