Fedora Security Tracking Bugs

  • To track security vulnerabilities in packages, tracking bugs are used.

List of Embedded Software

  • We are maintaining a list of embedded software within various packages. This will help us to quickly identify if a problem in library X can be corrected with updating library X, or if it also requires updating other packages that may contain their own private copies of library X. The Security/EmbeddedSoftware list is used for this purpose.
