Description of problem:
amavis doesn't install on EPEL9 because nothing provides perl(Net::LibIDN)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo dnf -y install amavis
Problem: conflicting requests
- nothing provides perl(Net::LibIDN) needed by amavis-2.12.2-3.el9.noarch
From what I'm seeing, there are 2 ways to deal with this
1) Solve bug 2037930, since this would remove the perl(Net::LibIDN) dependency
2) Wait for perl(Net::LibIDN) to get ported to EPEL9. This packet is not available because libidn was removed from RHEL9, but there is already interest for bringing this package to EPEL9 (bug 2054125).
This problem was found using the following service:
From what I'm seeing, bug 2054125 is already resolved, so you could ask the perl(Net::LibIDN) maintainer to bring their package to EPEL9  as an alternative to solving this problem.
Amavis upstream has already switched to Net::LibIDN2 and that change is already in rawhide, however I don't want to bring a git snapshot to epel, so I will wait for an official release before publishing those changes in epel.
On the other side, I've requested perl(Net::LibIDN) for epel9 in bug 2091511, that will fix the current situation.
Created attachment 1885235 [details]
Backport of "Switch from Net::LibIDN to Net::LibIDN2" from the upstream Git. This should hopefully avoid a) perl-Net-LibIDN in EPEL 9 and b) Git snapshots in EPEL.
The requirement for "perl(Net::LibIDN)" in the amavis.spec file should be changed to "perl(Net::LibIDN2)" as well, when applying this patch.
