Description of problem:
rpm in CentOS is currently built without ndb support. Community members are interested in enabling this in CentOS Stream.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
If this is determined to be acceptable, I'll attach a patch here from that pull request.
We (Facebook) have currently deployed ndb fleetwide on CentOS 7, and would like to be able to do the same on CentOS Stream. Enabling ndb support in rpm won't take effect unless one sets the %_db_backend ndb macro, so it should be safe (and a noop for existing systems).
Enabling ndb support in RHEL would require much more than just flicking a configure switch, such a thing would need to go through the official enhancement request process.
We can and should fix the spec thinko/typo that prevents "--with ndb" build option from working as intended though, starting with Fedora. So ACK for this commit https://git.centos.org/fork/malmond/rpms/rpm/c/d9949767ee5198b0fdbf2f527a385ce02532181a but NAK for actually enabling it.
Closing as WONTFIX per comment #3, the with/without typo is being handled separately through bug 1770972.
I believe the typo fix is being handled in bug 1817010, not but 1770972.
Oops, that's correct. Sorry (too much bug number copy-paste here for one afternoon)
