After a quick IRC discussion with uwog we have a plan for abiword/touch handles/F18.
- abiword-2.9.4 will be released soon, unless anyone speaks up, http://abisource.com/mailinglists/abiword-dev/2012/Oct/0009.html
- 2.9.4 will also be packaged in F18 unless anyone points out any big holes. (lets send uwog the .spec changes to save him some time)
- Carlos's touch handles work is at http://bugzilla.abisource.com/show_bug.cgi?id=13410 - next step is for him to post a new patch incorporating the review feedback, when he has time. I share the hope that upstreaming will be quick from that point.
From the 13.1.0 meeting earlier, we'll have to ship a forked package in the mean time (starting this week), Gonzalo is in charge of that. But with the above plan in place, it shouldn't be long before abiword-2.9.x is in Fedora and Carlos's work is in the official sources, at which point the fork can be dropped.
