Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1276094
Please update python-pandas to 0.17
Last modified: 2015-11-21 09:26:38 EST
My apologies if this not the proper way to request that a EPEL package be updated... Sadly, I am hitting a bug in pandas 0.16.2 that is fixed in 0.17
Could updated python-pandas be pushed? :) Thank you
Currently using: python-pandas-0.16.2-1.el7.x86_64 , but I see 0.17.1 is due to be released in 2 weeks, so perhaps you are awaiting it? :)
Well, the main problem is that in EPEL we try to avoid API changes if possible. It looks 0.17 has some:
I'm not sure how big of an issue these will present.

What do you think about updating only for EPEL7 and leaving EPEL6 on 0.16?
I agree, there's a lot of API changes here. So, I definitely wouldn't want to destabilize long-running apps on EL6. However, EL7 is new enough that I'd support updating there.
Wow, thanks guys for the immediate responses. I understand the desire for API compat with RHEL releases, but the prospect of having pandas 0.16.2 for many years into the future is not very exciting as I don't know of any bug backporting that will be done into a 0.16 release series...
For what it is worth, I built the EPEL python-pandas-0.17.0-1.fc24.src.rpm on RHEL7 and it works around my current bug.
There is no pandas build for EL6 at the moment (or probably ever), so that's not a consideration.
I have to agree that updating pandas now in EPEL7 seems the way to go as it has only been available in EPEL7 for 3-4 months. But I'm sure this will be an issue again in the future.
