Description of problem:
mpach2 package got obsoleted on rhel 6.6
package: Ray-mpich2-2.3.1-3.el6.x86_64 from epel
So Ray needs packaging changes.
Created attachment 953928 [details]
Proposed patch for rhel 6.6 mpich2 -> mpich move
Leave mpich2 requirements on epel5.
Obsolete and conflict mpich2 variant on versions where mpich shold be used.
I applied your patch to branches 'el6' and 'master':
Can I close this ?
You fixed this and then Till Maas retried the package?
Did you build that fixed package?
I tried to build Ray-2.3.1-5.fc22.src.rpm for rawhide with koji, but I got a linking error.
I created a ticket since this is a different issue than the Ray-mpich2 issue.
I'm talking about epel6. Ray was droppen from epel6 and I don't see package version with my fix been ever built. If dropping Ray was intentional it's ok for me to close this issue.
Here is a build with your fix of Ray-2.3.1-6 for build target el6-candidate.
This is a scratch build. I am getting the error "ActionNotAllowed: policy violation (build_from_srpm)" when doing a non-scratch koji build.
I tried with 'fedpkg build --target el6-candidate' and the system reported this error:
BuildError: package Ray is blocked for tag dist-6E-epel-testing-candidate
This commit retired the package:

2014-12-20: Retired because of broken deps:
unresolved dependencies for Ray-mpich2-2.3.1-3.el6.i686:
Yep. - you had the patch ready and committed but never built for epel6 so the pacakge got removed from epel6. You need to talk to epel6 folks if you want the package back to epel6.
I'm not intrested in Ray, I just wanted to help to fix the dependency issue.
I opened a ticket to unretire the branch el6:
el6-candidate scratch build
This package has changed maintainer in the Fedora.
