I’ve been using the hawkey backend on my Fedora 20 system for about 6 weeks now. In that time, I’ve found bugs in hawkey, librepo and even libsolv and I’d like to thank Michael, Tomas and Ales for all the help debugging and reviewing all the fixes. Of course, there were quite a few PackageKit bugs fixed too. So if you’re testing PackageKit-hawkey you really want to update to these packages:
Those updates are currently on their way to updates-testing, but will be in Fedora 20 in a few short days barring any last minute problems. I am now happy we can switch Fedora 21 to using hawkey by default, and reap the rewards of all the hard work put in by so many people over the last few months. I for one am really happy about the speed boost brought to all the applications using PackageKit.
On that note, happy Christmas everyone.
