> Dear members of the Mono SIG group,
> I have been working in the past week on building Mono 5 for Fedora Rawhide.
> This has been made possible by the work of directhex, who fixed the build
> for Debian.
> For details on his work see https://github.com/mono/mono/issues/7445
> The discussion lives at
> Unfortunately we are too late for the upcoming Fedora 30, since the change
> affects quite a number of packages.
> For Mono 4, we needed a bootstrap build, and filed it as a system wide
> change: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Mono_4
> I will prepare a similar change proposal for Mono 5 for Fedora 31.
> Please can you look at the code, and evaluate if the package is properly
> The source is still here:
> After the change proposal gets accepted, I would put it in the proper
> source control in https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/mono
> The package is built here:
> Another issue I want to bring up is the state of Mono 4 in Fedora 30.
> I probably committed a mistake, by disabling the ppc64 builds for Mono due
> to a long standing bug on that architecture.
> I just did not want mono to be FTBFS for yet another Fedora release.
> See the details here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1588734
> It seems, that now all packages depending on Mono cannot be built anymore,
> because they still have ppc64 enabled.
> What do you think, is this really a problem, and if yes, how can we
> resolve it?
> In Rawhide, things should go back to normal as soon as Mono 5 has landed.
> Should we consider porting Mono 5 back to Fedora 30 after the Fedora 30
> release? But that would contradict calling it a system wide change...
> Or we disable ppc64 in Fedora 30 altogether? It should be available in
> Fedora 31 again.
> Any suggestions and help in testing and evaluating are welcome!
