Description of problem:
Cinnamon 3.6.7 depends on caribou, however, that is RPM obsolete in gnome-shell-3.28.3-6.el7
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update to RHEL 7.6 and install cinnamon
Error: Package: cinnamon-3.6.7-3.el7.x86_64 (@epel)
Removing: caribou-0.4.21-1.el7.x86_64 (@anaconda/7.5)
caribou(x86-64) = 0.4.21-1.el7
Obsoleted By: gnome-shell-3.28.3-6.el7.x86_64 (localmirror)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
This is a change in RHEL7.6 from RHEL 7.5
I no longer support RHEL.
Leigh, if you no longer wish to support this package in RHEL or CentOS, please retire the package from EPEL so it can be removed from the repository

I've run this for the following epel7 packages (fedpkg retire 'Not enough time to maintain').
Is that all that is required as I'm clueless to the process since pkgdb was retired.
The notes for the new infra are totally lacking IMO.

This was reassigned to Alternative GTK desktop environments. I'll reopen for now to see if someone there is interested in maintaining for RHEL.

Alternative GTK desktop environments = 3 people including me.
me = not interested
raveit65 = busy with mate or not interested
besser82 = MIA or not interested
I'd be willing to maintain these and an EPEL7 branch of caribou.
FAS account name: jcpunk
Can I be granted the relevant rights?
Any updates on this? I would love to see Cinnamon continue to be supported in EPEL. I have a ton of users using it. jcpunk appears to have volunteered to maintain it.
The packages have been in epel-testing but no one seems to be actually testing them and giving jcpunk the karma so they can be pushed.
