Description Rich Mattes 2014-11-20 14:40:03 UTC
Description of problem:
Gearbox is built against ice, which was retired for f21+ just before the final freeze.  Ice is an optional dependency for gearbox, so gearbox is now rebuilt for f21 and rawhide without a dependency on ice.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2014-11-20 14:42:29 UTC
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 21-final by Fedora user rmattes using the blocker tracking app because:

 gearbox is required for the robotics spin to compose, and the new build is required since ice is no longer in Fedora.  It's a leaf dependency, and it was a simple rebuild that shouldn't hurt anything that depends on it.

Discussed at 2014-11-24 freeze exception review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2014-11-24/f21-blocker-review.2014-11-24-17.01.log.txt . Accepted as a freeze exception issue, obviously good to fix dep problems in packages on shipped media.

Was pushed stable yesterday, closing.
