Description Dave Hodgins 2021-02-24 19:45:04 CET
Synergy has version checking that prevents sharing the mouse/keyboard/clipboard
between different versions. As Mageia 8 is being released with version 1.13.0,
the Mageia 7 version should be updated too.

https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Updates_policy#Version_Policy has an exception for
"Software that is version-bound to an online service (games, virus scanners?) and will only work with the latest version."

In this case the online service is provided by a Mageia 8 system on the same lan,
so the exception requirement is met.

Assigning to daviddavid who did the Mageia 8 update for synergy.

Done for mga7 in Core/Updates_testing repo!
Comment 2 Dave Hodgins 2021-02-25 09:34:14 CET
Advisory committed to svn as ...
type: bugfix
subject: Updated synergy packages fix compatibility with Mageia 8
     - synergy-1.13.0-1.mga7
description: |
  As synergy only works between systems on a lan running the same version,
  this update syncs the version with Mageia 8, allowing synergy to be used
  on systems running both Mageia 7 and 8 on a lan.
 - https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28434

No regressions found testing the update between two desktop systems both
running Mageia 7. I'll configure my Mageia 8 system later.

Validating the update.
