Comment 1 Pavel Raiskup 2014-05-23 02:53:00 EDT
I think it is quite pity we ship version marked "alpha".  We ship alpha/beta
version for some time already so I'll rather ask upstream what distributions
should do.
Comment 2 Pavel Raiskup 2015-01-06 02:19:39 EST
There is only tiny API change which should not cause troubles, see the release
notes [1] (grep for: lzma_allocator const).  The commit [2].  I'll attach
pkgdiff analysis later.

Library analysis:
    $ repoquery_rawhide -q --provides xz-libs.x86_64 | tee xz-libs.provides
    xz-libs = 5.1.2-15alpha.fc22
    xz-libs(x86-64) = 5.1.2-15alpha.fc22

Package xz-libs 5.2.0 will provide 'liblzma.so.5(XZ_5.0)'.  No package requires
'liblzma.so.5(XZ_5.1.2alpha)'.  The only package seems to require
'xz-libs = 5.1.2' (repoquery_rawhide -qR perl-Compress-Raw-Lzma).

    $ repoquery_rawhide --archlist src --whatrequires xz-static

The only package seem to src require 'xz-static' (supermin).

At the end:  only 'supermin' and 'perl-Compress-Raw-Lzma' needs to be rebuilt
for 5.2.0 (STABLE!) rebase.
