You can configure up2date to "skip" any application you don't want overwritten. So, if you were playing with one version of an application that wasn't in the "official distribution" you can still use up2date without hosing your pet project. This is not tracking a specific version among many but perhaps "apt" has this capability, I don't use it so I don't know. > > Is it just a matter of the hours required to put rpms together? > There is another thread currently where a fellow has a problem because another application, Galeon I think, requires the Mozilla libraries from the version prior to the bug fix. He has to make a choice to update Mozilla and in doing so, dumping Galeon or keeping Galeon and living with a Mozilla that easily seg faults or digging in to see what Galeon really needs. What other programs use the Mozilla libs? I don't know, but these are the kinds of problems that will have to be addressed when a new version is released. > Since Fedora is "For the people, by the people", what is the process > to volunteer to do this sort of thing?
