Dependency for bcfg2 doesn't exist in EPEL
Last modified: 2007-12-09 00:32:44 EST
Description of problem:
bcfg2 requires python-lxml which doesn't exit in the EPEL repository
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install clean rhel4 system
2. Add epel repo to sources
3. up2date bcfg2
Error: Missing Dependency: python-lxml is needed by package bcfg2
Should pull python-lxml as dependency
This issue also affects el5 as well.
I've been trying to contact the python-lxml maintainer for almost a month now
(see #245690). Unless he responds soon we'll probably need to declare him AWOL
and find new maintainers for his packages.

Source rpm for python-lxml
This is the source rpm that I am using to resolve the dependency. I've run it
through brew. It builds on all arches and I have tested on i386 and x86_64. If
the maintainer is in fact AWOL, I wouldn't mind picking up maintainer-ship (If
that is appropriate).
Looks like python-lxml is in epel now, can this bug be closed?
