The process for requesting a new package repository currently requires a package review ticket even in those cases where the package has been granted an exception (either an existing blanket exception or a specific exception granted by the packaging committee).
As the designated ticket for the exception process (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1376885) can no longer be used due to new scm processing requirements that the ticket reporter match with scm repo requester, I'm filing a new ticket for this package.
compat-libicu60 is being requested without review under the blanket exception for multi-versioned packages. It will be used to keep ABI compatibility with packages built against icu 60 after introducing icu 61 to rawhide.
Existing package: icu
New package: compat-libicu60
Approving as per the blanket exception.
