Expected results:
Successful build.

Comment 1 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2017-07-19 12:59:39 UTC
Red Hat maintainer doesn't want to build prelink for these two arches, so a limited-arch EPEL package is required.

Comment 2 Christoph Junghans 2017-07-19 17:00:23 UTC
I requested an epel7 branch for execstack: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/package/requests/12565

Comment 3 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2017-07-20 12:00:23 UTC
I think you were supposed to build this for aarch64 and ppc64le ONLY. It's available on other EPEL7 arches already as part of prelink and you're violating EPEL policy by conflicting with the existing prelink package. Please untag your build as soon as possible.

Comment 4 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2017-07-20 12:02:49 UTC
Ah, sorry, I haven't noticed it was a scratch build from SRPM. Please disregard comment 3.

Yeah, it was meant as a test, but thanks for reminding me to set ExclusiveArch.
