Do we have any branching mechanism (under VCS repositories, say git, hg,
svn) in process for all Fedora software packages maintained on
The above question is because, I faced following issue.
I am using Fedora 9 system on my personal machine and do not want to
upgrade to Fedora 10 or rawhide. Recently, I found some translation
mistakes for some Fedora packages, and want to update the translation
for those packages packages for Fedora 9 and make it upstream. But,
there is no way at the moment to download and submit Fedora 9
translations for most of the packages/modules listed here:
If you visit above link, you will find very few packages has got Fedora
9 branches in their VCS repos. Packages properly branched are: Anaconda,
initscripts, pykickstart, system-config-kickstart. So, thanks to the
package maintainers of these packages. Though, the branch naming is
inconsistent across these packages. But, what about other packages? None
of the other packages are branched/tagged with "f9-branch" or
"Branch-F9". All of them are continuously getting updated under master
or tip or Head or trunk branch. No real branching is happening there.
So, how can I submit translations for these other packages for Fedora 9?
I would appreciate if someone can answer my query!
