Any plans for Fedora 23 Support?

Any plans for Fedora 23 Support?

After upgrading to Fedora 23, I'm getting an error with DNF/YUM:

Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'Dropbox' from 'http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/23/': Cannot download repomd.xml: Cannot download repodata/repomd.xml: All mirrors were tried, disabling.

 

Can you please create new /23/ repo?

Thanks.

Year by year the same situation. When new Fedora is relised, we need to wait some weeks for reactions of Dropbox team. Why you are can't create repos in time?
Dropbox have repos for Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora. Fedora and Ubuntu comes out twice in each year. Debian - one in 2 years. Make new repos 4-5 times in the year - not so difficult.

it looks will not take too much time to upgrade the Dropbox Fedora 23 support.

So, please fix this

I preffer to use rpmfusion, they have dropbox working for fedora 23. As @Andrey say's, every year is the same.

 

Last time Dropbox take like 2 months to create Fedora 22 repo, don't know why they take so long.

@luis carlos s. 

rpmfusion still doesn't support Fedora 23. You probably haven't noticed, but what you're using is just the repo for 22. You can achieve the same by editing the dropbox official repo definition and replacing $releasever for "22"

Edit /etc/yum.repos.d/dropbox.repo:

[Dropbox]
name=Dropbox Repository
baseurl=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/$releasever/
gpgkey=https://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/rpm-public-key.asc

 

To this:

[Dropbox]
name=Dropbox Repository
baseurl=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/22/
gpgkey=https://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/rpm-public-key.asc

@Diego s. I know I can do it, But I hate to hardcode that kind of things, I will never notice when dropbox create the new repo and when they do, I will have to change back the dropbox.repo. becouse of that I prefer to use rpmfusion.

Still error 404 for http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/23/ Come on Dropbox people.. Fedora 23 was released last month! Same thing happened when Fedora 22 was released 6 months before. You guys asleep, or what?

Dropbox team, are you so stupid to run couple simple commands from command line?
Ok, here commands, you need only copy and paste it.

ssh user@linux.dropbox.com
>enter password for user on this step

cd /path/to/fedora/folder
cp -r 22/ 23/

And it's done! No more threads like this.
And bonus to you! For next release repeat this steps, but change
last line to:
cp -r 23/ 24/

My grandmother more agile than you!

I changed $releasever to 22 in the repo but It gets changed back every update I do and It still search for Fedora 23 repo.   Please just copy repo 22 over 23 and create repo for fedora 23.  It's been 2 months that 23 is official now.

 

It would save a lot of problem if you would follow fedora version with your repo.

 

Thanks,

            BT
