Comment 2 Vincent Danen 2011-07-05 03:49:54 UTC
Is there a particular reason why these EPEL bugs haven't been dealt with yet?  The patch is in Fedora and for the same version, so it should be easy enough to get the fix committed.

Comment 3 Adam Miller 2011-07-05 15:01:05 UTC
Because I thought I had orphaned the package since I haven't used fail2ban in almost a year ... I'll make the fix but will likely be looking for a new maintainer for the EPEL branch of fail2ban in the not too distant future.

Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2011-07-05 23:27:50 UTC
Thanks for that, Adam.  I wasn't aware it was supposed to be orphaned (it does not currently seem to be, or if it is, bugzilla is not aware of that status).  I appreciate you taking the time to make the fix.  Thank you.
