Change Proposal Name

Autoconf 2.69 -> 2.71 upgrade

Summary

Upgrading autoconf from version 2.69 to the last upstream version 2.71.

Owner

  • Name: Ondrej Dubaj
  • Email: odubaj@redhat.com


Current status

  • Targeted release: f35 or f36
  • Last updated: 2021-02-05
  • FESCo issue: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>
  • Release notes tracker: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

Upgrading autoconf from version 2.69 to version 2.71 according to new upstream release. Version 2.70 is skipped due to multiple ABI incompatibilities, where some of them were fixed in version 2.71. Years of development differ these two releases, so problems are expected.

Feedback

Benefit to Fedora

Brings a stable and up-to-date version of autoconf according to upsteam release. It is expected, that in the future many upstream development teams will use autoconf-2.71 as their default builder, so we should be prepared for such a step.
