Description Scott K Logan 2021-01-20 00:18:27 UTC
Description of problem:
The irrlicht package is built for EPEL 7, but there has not been a build for EPEL 8. The dependencies for this package are met, and the `master` branch builds cleanly against EPEL 8 unmodified: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=60073016

If testing and/or maintenance is a concern and co-maintenance is an option, please let me know.


Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2021-01-20 03:10:50 UTC
I am afraid to ask why you need this in EPEL-8.

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2021-01-30 04:12:49 UTC
You are aware that the last release of irrlicht was 4 years ago?  If you really want it you are welcome to maintain it.  What's your FAS username?

> You are aware that the last release of irrlicht was 4 years ago?

I wasn't aware. My end goal is to package Assimp, and it looks like irrXML is a dependency.

Do you think I'd have a better time getting an exception to use the bundled irrXML with Assimp instead?

Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2021-01-30 04:40:58 UTC
Perhaps worth just dropping irrXML support from assimp?  Is it needed for anything?

Comment 5 Scott K Logan 2021-02-01 16:27:48 UTC
It looks non-trivial to strip out irrXML for XML parsing in assimp.

I can see that irrXML is released as a standalone package, but it also hasn't been released in quite a while. I feel it would also be strange to release irrXML separately in EPEL but not in Fedora.

This is looking like a lot of work, unfortunately. I don't think I'll have the time to come up with a proper solution.

Thanks for your feedback.

Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2021-02-01 16:43:33 UTC
Your need for irrXML is reasonable. Reopen this bug and I'll build irrlicht for EL-8. It's been so long since I looked at this one that I had forgotten irrXML was in there.

Thank you!
