If this is the correct venue, I would like to request updates to the last versions of the following software:

arb (Arbitrary-precision floating point ball arithmetic). F27 version: 2.11.1. Last version: 2.13.

python-mpmath (Python library for multiprecision FP arithmetic). F27 version: 0.19. Last version: 1.0

Both Libraries I use on a daily basis, but are significantly out of date. If this is not the correct place to make such a request, please tell me where should I send the plea.

In case of python-mpmath , its information in Anitya ( ) was outdated, hence Fedora infrastructure wasn't automatically notifying about newer versions. I fixed that simply by changing backend type (from old Google code to current GitHub) and pasting current repository url.

System has already created a bug informing maintainers about newer version, you can subscribe to it and contact maintainers. For arb such bug has already been reported before.

For every Fedora package there should be corresponding Packages page with lots of useful information, e.g. , you'll see there who's the point of contact for this package, what bugs are open, what updates are currently available for testing, etc.

If you can't get in touch with maintainers, post a question on devel mailing list:

For packages you're interested in, you can help e.g. by making sure their details on are up to date, testing updates before they are pushed to stable repositories (and all users), reporting bugs, maintaining packages and providing updates/support for others or doing many other tasks.
