Please branch for EL-5
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:20 EST
I'd like to request that perl-Lockfile-Simple be branched for EL-5 as another
package that I'd like to use (and possibly package once I get the kinks worked
out) requires it. The package is RANCID <http://www.shrubbery.net/rancid/>.
I'm willing to co-maintain the package if you'd like (FAS username jcollie).
I can branch perl-Lockfile-Simple for EPEL. No problem there.
But packaging rancid is not going to work, been there myself:
## This software may be freely copied, modified and redistributed
## without fee for non-commerical purposes provided that this license
## remains intact and unmodified with any RANCID distribution.
Note the "non-commercial" purposes in the rancid license.

Package Name: perl-LockFile-Simple
Short Description: Simple file locking scheme
Branches: EL-5, EL-4
Cvsextras Commits: yes
Andreas, thanks for branching this so quickly! I hadn't seen the non-commercial
use clause thanks for pointing that out. I'll probably keep packaging RANCID
for personal use and having all the deps ready to go in EL-5 will make things
simpler. Too bad the RANCID developers added the non-commercial clause, having
RANCID in Fedora would have been nice.
epel rpms have been built, closing.
