Branch request: rsnapshot for EPEL9

Please consider adding rsnapshot to EPEL9


Thank you!

Comment 1 Nathan Coulson 2022-04-08 19:41:33 UTC
I took EPEL8's spec file for this and rebuilt on EL9.

I had to make the following change:
BuildRequires:  perl(DirHandle)
Requires:  perl(DirHandle)

(Looks like in el8, /usr/share/perl5/DirHandle.pm is provided by perl-interpreter, while el9 it is provided by perl-DirHandle),  Both packages appear to provide perl(DirHandle).

Comment 2 Nathan Coulson 2022-04-08 19:48:40 UTC
(Also needed to build perl-Lchown, I have some locally rebuild perl RPM's, so could be other dependencies I did not see as well)

Comment 3 Leon Fauster 2022-04-09 01:08:06 UTC
Thanks for taking a look. 

A local rebuild of perl-Lchown and rsnapshot build straight away
without modifications. No further deps necessary. CRB repo enabled.

# rpm -q perl-Lchown-1.01-21.el9.x86_64 rsnapshot

$ rpm -q --requires rsnapshot
config(rsnapshot) = 1.4.3-7.el9
perl(:VERSION) >= 5.4.0
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadIsZstd) <= 5.4.18-1

# LANG=C yum provides "perl(DirHandle)"
perl-DirHandle-1.05-479.el9.noarch : Supply object methods for directory handles
Repo        : appstream
Matched from:
Provide    : perl(DirHandle) = 1.05

Comment 4 Nathan Coulson 2022-04-10 20:28:51 UTC
(should probably add, I am not part of EPEL, just my own experience packaging it for our own use).  Also didn't test if DirHandle was both a BuildRequires and Requires, or just one.

Comment 5 Leon Fauster 2022-04-15 12:10:40 UTC
The build does not request any missing requirement. Its just a "Requires" while installing that pull the perl packages:

# LANG=C yum install rsnapshot

Is this ok [y/N]: 
Operation aborted.

To sum up: 

its only perl-Lchown and rsnapshot that need to be branched. 

I'd really appreciate your effort!

Comment 6 Steve S 2022-07-28 14:09:01 UTC

I'd just like to bump this. It's an important feature used by many for backup/recovery of enterprise servers and also for home users.  I'd very much appreciate it if it was branched and built.

Thank You!

Please branch and build rsnapshot in epel9.

If you do not wish to maintain snapshot in epel9,
or do not think you will be able to do this in a timely manner,
I would be happy to be a co-maintainer of the package (FAS jonathanspw);
please add me through https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/rsnapshot/adduser

Comment 8 stone 2022-09-15 22:58:53 UTC
I too would like to see this in epel9
