Description of problem:

Hi, i'm fedora/epel7 mate maintainer and i was surprised about the 'soname' bump of libgtop2 in rhel7. I noticed that a yum update failed because of a missing rebuilds of my epel7 packages. No a big deal, because the soname bump was already done in fedora some months ago. But, mate desktop users of epel7 repo have to wait 14 days until my rebuilds are in stable epel7 repo. During this time yum will always fail without 'failed updates ignore' is enabled. Maybe you find a procedure to inform epel7 maintainer for a soname bump in future before you pushed updates to rhel stable repos.

Best regards,
Wolfgang Ulbrich

I will try to remember, but it is not likely that I will. In any case, it wouldn't solve having to wait 14 days in updates-testing.
