[epel7s390x] List of packages not found in RHEL7 channels or EPEL7 FTP sites
Last modified: 2017-08-08 16:19:50 EDT
Neither the RHEL7 RHN channels (os, optional, and supplementary) nor the
EPEL7 FTP site carries the following packages.
The packages that are restricted from building due to dependencies based on the missing packages are also listed.
missing package: erlang-mochiweb
dependency for: couchdb
dep: datagrepper, librepo
dep: pagure, python-mongoengine
dep: python-execnet, python-x2go
dep: python-flask-babel, python-flask-mako, python-flask-rstpages, python-flask-sqlalchemy, python-flask-whooshalchemy, python-flask-whooshalchemy, python-flask-xml-rpc, python-fmn-web, python-moksha-hub, python-narcissus-app, python-pygal, datagrepper, librepo, pagure
... please review this bugzilla as soon as possible
(which is addressing multiple packages ..)
and please provide your thoughts how to pursue ...
Thanks in advance for your support.
I think there are at least 3 options why the packages are not available
- they are (or became) part or RHEL, but not for s390x
- they got orphaned and removed because there was no active maintainer and was part of broken dependency chain
- omissions or other errors
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/ can be used to confirm the "alive state" for a package
http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/ lists the git repos for every package in Fedora (and EPEL), the epel7 branch in the package git should contains a reason if package got removed
I have briefly checked few of the packages and for example
- couchdb and erlang-mochiweb are orphaned and thus not available in EPEL-7 any more
- lack of python-restkit looks as a bug
The complete overview will take some time to produce.

What are the next steps on this bug?
python-flask is in the 'rhel extras' channel.
