Description Steve Traylen 2010-05-11 12:31:57 EDT
mysql-connector-java is new in Beta6 with version:

mysql-connector-java-5.1.8-2.el6.src.rpm

but EPEL5 contained

mysql-connector-java-5.1.12-2.el5.src.rpm

This could potentially make updating systems tricky.

Steve.

We can't realistically promise that RHEL6 will be NVR-newer than any EPEL package, especially not when the EPEL maintainer feels free to rebase once a month.  If you want to make a case that we should rebase mysql-connector-java now, I'm happy to consider it, but the decision can *not* be driven by what the EPEL maintainer is doing.
Comment 3 Steve Traylen 2010-05-11 13:25:40 EDT
In this case I am the EPEL maintainer, it's just incredibly new since it was
only added to EPEL very recently, there has only been one version ever in
EPEL.

The main reason is the nvr upgrade.

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/cj-news-5-1.html

shows a lot bug fixes between 5.1.8 and 5.1.12.

Oh, pleased to meet you --- for some reason I thought Miloš Jakubíček was handling this package in EPEL as well as Fedora.

Yeah, there are kind of a lot of bug fixes listed there :-(.  We're getting pretty late in the RHEL6 cycle for upstream rebases, but I'll put this in the request queue and see what happens.

with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
