Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 197867
Review Request: iscsitarget (includes kernel module)
Last modified: 2007-12-21 15:22:33 EST
Proposed package name: iscsitarget (and kmod-iscsitarget)
Project URL: http://iscsitarget.sourceforge.net
It won't get merged. At some point it was submitted to linux-scsi for
However, IET will be superceded by a generic target framework:
. "tgt" will also provide iSCSI target functionality (among others). It
is more likely to be merged, because it addresses the points made in the
linux-scsi review, and well, because it's a generic framework. ;-)
Note: I will be adding a warning about the "stopgap" status of the project
to the %description of each package.
Was there any specific reason why you assigned this bug directly to me?

I was trying to follow the instructions at:
Besides rules around the packaging there is one additional *before* you
start packaging a kernel module for Fedora Extras: Open a Review bug in
[WWW] http://bugzilla.redhat.com and ask FESCo via
fedora<AT>leemhuis<DOT>info for permission if this module is allowed for

Sorry, we forget to discuss it last week. But we discussed it yesterday in the
FESCo-Meeting and allowed this kmod to enter Extras.
whats the current status of this package?
Ian will you be submitting packages?
SRPMS are now at:
Just curious, why is i386 not included as an exclusive arch:
ExclusiveArch: i586 i686 x86_64 ppc
Well, we're not shipping any i386 kernel for starters...
Hey, I made a package for stgt in this bugzilla
It is currently very basic. For example you have to run tgtadm by hand to create
targets. I am working on a tool, that will read iet config files and translate
it to tgtadm calls for a user.
Perhaps this duplication has already been discussed?

I do not think anyone knew there was another request and review for IET.
It was submitted after this one. I think I'll just close it as a duplicate.

Hmm, now that FESCo has decided not to permit kernel modules at all, what's to
become of this ticket? Will someone talk to the kernel folks to see if they'd
be interested in adding the module portion to the kewnel package?
Well, it's been three more months; I don't see any progress here and the module
simply isn't going to go into Fedora unless it goes either via the upstream
kernel or by convincing the Fedora kernel maintainers to carry it even when
So I'll go ahead and close this.
