Being a package maintainer might be a good hobby and it's a great way how to help your favorite Linux distribution grow and be better. But what happens when thousands of other RPM packages depend on something you maintain? How to update it and don't break anything else? And what to do if you maintain something like that in an enterprise distribution where updates to a newer version are completely out of question?
In this session, I'm gonna talk about the daily routine of package maintainers in Red Hat. How it looks in Fedora, where we're living on the edge, and how careful we have to be in RHEL. We're also gonna discuss how software developers might prepare their code to be packaged and make the packagers' lives easier.
No previous experience with RPM packaging is required for this talk.
