Description of problem:
Version 0.5.3 fixes a bug that was registered here https://github.com/stefanberger/swtpm/issues/644
We want to update our service to make use of this change.
So we are requesting that swtpm be built for epel 8.
Can I build swtpm 0.7.2 or does it have to be the older 0.5.x?
The reason for the request of 0.5.x is that we're using Rocky Linux and not Fedora, so it needs to use the EPEL repository (which only includes 0.5.x versions for some reason: https://mirrors.xtom.de/epel/8/Everything/x86_64/Packages/s/
If it's possible to upload 0.7.x versions there, I'm not sure we'll mind. I just assumed it has to do something with the other packages compatibility
I am asking for the version so that this can be coordinated with what RHEL 8.x is packaging these days.
So AFAIK, 0.5.x is the right thing to release for centos/rhel/rocky/etc.
I'm an openshift engineer though, not an OS one

RHEL 8.6 swtpm version will be 0.7.0-1.20211109gitb79fd91.
RHEL 8.5 (AV) should be 0.6.0-2.20210607gitea627b3.
But EPEL should not provide conflicting packages with RHEL, so swtpm & libtpms should be retired I suppose.
Correct, when RHEL 8.6 is released (in approximately two months) swtpm and libtpms must be retired from epel8.
I had unpushed this bodhi update because I misunderstood this to be a new package to epel8, which wouldn't make sense to add for only two months. Then I realized that this package is already in epel8 . At the time it was added it wasn't in violation of policy, as swtpm wasn't part of the virt:rhel module yet. Considering it's already in epel8, and module filtering hides this package, it won't effect CentOS Stream 8 systems and is probably ok to keep (and update) in epel8 until the RHEL 8.6 release.
