Dear 10gen,

Please merge my patches. I want to give MongoDB the best possible “out of the box” experience on Fedora and RHEL EPEL. I’ve taken my time to make sure that these patches were written in a way that preserves upstream behavior and compatibility, because I think upstream should have a great experience too. Since we support releases from RHEL5 to Fedora Rawhide, our packaging provides you with valuable testing and help to ensure that MongoDB will work with RHEL N+1 before it is even released. However, every release you make without our patches makes my life harder and all but ensures that Fedora won’t be able to run the latest version until well after it is released. In short: help us help you.

Sincerely,

Nathaniel McCallum
MongoDB Maintainer – Fedora
