gpsd update
 
I'd like to update the gpsd package to the latest version 2.94. If
there will be no objections, probably sometimes next week.

Unfortunately, there were non-trivial API changes since version 2.39
that break most of the dependent packages. The first version with the
new API (2.90) was released more than a year ago, so I think the
upstreams had enough time to make necessary changes and we shouldn't
wait any longer.

Packages that currently use libgps.so.18:

qtgpsc-0:0.2.3-6.fc12
kdebase-workspace-0:4.4.2-5.fc14
vfrnav-0:0.4-1.fc13
gpsdrive-0:2.10-0.5.pre7.fc13
kdeedu-marble-libs-0:4.4.2-1.fc14
vifir-0:0.4-1.fc12
viking-0:0.9.9-1.fc12

Here is a gpsd srpm in case anyone wants to start preparing patches

That's a dubious argument since many projects aren't very intimate with
all of their upstreams :) I didn't even know gpsd development was
active. Seems like competition from gypsy is a good thing!

Go ahead, I will fix up problems should they pop up.

Thanks,
Tom

You've missed both geoclue and tangogps off that list.

geoclue dropped support for gpsd in F-13 and later so its not really an issue.

What of the dependencies have an upstream with a port to the new
version of gpsd. If none of them do I think its a little pointless
updating just for the sake of it if all dependant packages break. It
the majority of them do support the new api then its more worthwhile.

I presume this would be just for F-14/rawhide.

geoclue doesn't seem to support the old API anymore.

xtide is another package that supports only the new API, see

Yes.
