Description of problem:


Would it be possible to build libevent for EL-4?

I have a package called mysql-proxy which needs libevent as a dependency.
It is available for EPEL 5, bot not for 4.

More information about EPEL is on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL

Kind regards,

Ruben, it seems Steve is not much interested in building libevent for EL4 (or
this bug fell of his radar). You are allowed to maintain the package in EPEL
yourself in this case if you want; see

"EPEL branching if Fedora maintainer does not react"
Comment 3 Ruben Kerkhof 2008-01-22 15:54:18 EST
Ok, thanks Thorsten.

Steve, I'll give you a week to think about it, and then I'll create a cvs request to branch libevent for EPEL.

The strange thing is that there's a libevent rpm in RHEL5, but there's no RHEL5 branch in cvs.
Maybe you can explain this Steve?


Comment 4 Steve Dickson 2008-01-24 13:18:42 EST

Its simply a time factor. I just don't have the time to back port
and more importantly support (which is the real time sync) 

Plus, I think creating a ELEL package is a much better idea.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the response, I'd love to maintain it for EPEL 4.
