This is a tracking bug for Change: mpfr-4.0.0
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/mpfr-4.0.0
Update the MPFR package to version 4.0.0.
On 2018-Feb-20, we have reached the Fedora 28 Change Checkpoint: Completion deadline (testable).
At this point, all accepted changes should be substantially complete, and testable. Additionally, if a change is to be enabled by default, it must be enabled at Change Completion deadline as well.
Change tracking bug should be set to the MODIFIED state to indicate it achieved completeness.
Incomplete and non testable Changes will be reported to FESCo for 2018-Feb-23 meeting.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 28 development cycle.
Changing version to '28'.
I am afraid we will have to postpone this change. The problem is that it is an API change, not only an ABI change, so the users of MPFR need to be ready for it, a rebuild is not enough. I will discuss with James Turner what to do next (I think we should release the new version under a different name which will not conflict with the old (mpfr-3.x) version.)
I agree with Pavel. Unfortunately there are both API and ABI changes that break at least a few key dependants. A notable victim is the libmpc package, on which GCC depends.
The maintainers are unresponsive.
I furthermore agree with Pavel that releasing MPFR 4.1 as a temporary separate package would alleviate this issue, and allow other packages to catch up. I will begin working on such a package if it is agreed.
