Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246274
Please branch/build rdiff-backup for EL-4 and EL-5
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:08 EST
Would you be willing to branch and build rdiff-backup for EPEL?
I would be happy to. In fact I needed rdiff-backup on a centos box the other day
and thought I should branch it.
Gavin: Do you have any interest in maintaining in EPEL? Or would you like me to?
Or co-maintain it?
Sure. I would need to get up to speed on the build tools etc. I think
co-maintain would be best to start and then see how we get on.
Luckily EPEL uses plague and all the same infrastructure as FC-6 does currently,
so it's not hard to get up to speed. ;)

Cool. Keep us posted.
branched. The EL-4 and EL-5 branches should be there now.
Would you like to test and build them? or would you like me to do so?
Note that the scripts branch EL-4 from FC-3 and EL-5 from FC-6, so we may want
to update both of those.
You go ahead.
I was waiting for pylibacl and pyxattr, which are in now.
It looks like EL-5 just builds and works fine.
Testing EL-4 now. I am going to update it to 1.0.5 as well, since rdiff-backup
wants all versions to be the same when communicating, and it would be nasty to
not be able to backup your EL-4 machines except to other EL-4 machines.
Will probibly check in and push something later tonight.
ok. I have build 1.0.5 for both EL-4 and EL-5. In my testing here they look good.
They should be in the next EPEL push.
Closing this bug now, and if anyone spots any issues, feel free to open a new
bug against them.
Awesome! Thanks, Kevin.
