Default Old fakeroot bug on F7 onwards - where to download from

Hi!

Fedora 7, 8 and 9 are shipping a version of fakeroot that is affected
by a somewhat nasty race condition.

The bug was characterised here
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=381016 , and with
trivial repo steps here
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=446351 . This bug was
fixed in 1.8.2 - F7,8,9 ship 1.6.4.

Hopefully, F9/F8 can get an updated version of the package included.
Help and pointers welcome :-) If that's not possible, I will prepare a
package for the school server and offer it here.

To Clint - looking for a link to the latest version to grace this
email, I cannot find a source package or a tagged package anywhere.
The most recent release I can see on Debian is 1.9.5 on Lenny and
1.9.6 on Sid, but there are no upstream tarballs on Alioth. Fakeroot
is useful on many platforms - is it possible to arrange for publishing
the tarballs somewhere?

cheers,

It sure is possible, I'll look into updating the packages for >= F8.

BTW were in the schook server project are you using it? Just curious.

I use the tarballs on
http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/f/fakeroot/

For example for the latest fakeroot you can pick

http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/f/fakeroot/fakeroot_1.9.6.tar.gz
