Please branch and build weechat in epel9.

weechat on  rawhide
❯ fedpkg request-branch epel9

Comment 2 Michel Alexandre Salim 2022-01-19 00:25:36 UTC
guile22 appears to be the only missing dependency (asciidoctor is only needed for docs building, and I've made that conditional). I'll follow up once that is branched.

Comment 3 Scott Robbins 2022-07-03 17:35:22 UTC
I'd like to add myself to the request (so that I get quick notification if it's done).  A quick aside, weechat can be made to work with Slack, which many of us use at work. See https://github.com/wee-slack/wee-slack

Comment 4 Scott Robbins 2022-07-05 03:39:35 UTC
I was able to build weechat from a Fedora 34 src.rpm.  When I ran builddeps it was unable to find guile22-devel. However, Alma 9 does have guile30-devel. I installed that and changed the spec file to require guile30-devel instead of guile22. Running builddep then ran successfully, and I was able to run rpmbuild -ba on the spec file, and install the rpm that was created. As I don't know enough about rpms to know if I may have broken something elsewhere, I'm not attaching a patch but that was the only change I made from a Fedora 34 src.rpm, changing the spec's guile22-devel requirement to guile30-devel This created, at least, a weechat package that works for me.
