Description Thorsten Leemhuis 2007-12-16 10:29:25 UTC
Description of problem:
package: moodle - 1.8.2-1.el5.noarch from epel5-testing
  unresolved deps: 
     perl(Text::Aspell)
     mimetex

Additional info:
I'd like to see the above problems solved.

Jerry, would you be willing to take care of perl(Text::Aspell) in EPEL5?

Jorge, would you be willing to take care of mimetex in EPEL5?

I've never contributed to EPEL before, so I don't really know what's involved. 
As long as I can do mock builds for EPEL on my Fedora 8 machine, it should be
fine.  I'll give it a try, but possibly not until I start my Christmas holiday
in a week.  I'll try to do it sooner, but I'm not going to promise.

The Summary line on this bug needs a typo fix: moddle -> moodle.

Should work.

you (afaik) could have done that yourself ;-)

May I ask how a mock build of a PHP app would be helpful?  PHP app requires
checking is a painstaking process involving the manual checking of the spec
against the repo, a process that can take some time and has for me on other
packages, and is a process that I have obviously failed to do properly for
Moodle. :)

Please use the mailing list

I can't answer this, sorry.

Sorry, forgot to include the <rhetorical> tag. :)

And I maybe should have looked closer/read the comment properly ;)

Comment 7 Gwyn Ciesla 2007-12-21 15:55:19 UTC
Jerry, all you really would need to do is request a branch for EL-5, then build.
 Honestly, EPEL contribtion is very easy. I've yet to catch any bug from EPEL
until this one, simply because most get found and fixed in Fedora, or usually
rawhide.  You don't even have to worry about updates, with the exception of
security.

If you'd rather not, I'll be happy to co-maintain for EPEL purposes, just
request the branch and let me take ownership.  That goes for Jorge as well.

Comment 8 Jerry James 2007-12-21 17:56:15 UTC
I have verified that perl-Text-Aspell builds in mock, and have requested a CVS
branch for it.  Stand by for a build.

Comment 9 Jerry James 2007-12-22 05:49:26 UTC
Okay, it's built.  Have fun!

thx Jerry.

Jorge, any plans for mimetex in EPEL?

Comment 11 Kevin Fenzi 2008-01-20 21:55:48 UTC
Note that there is still a broken dep on mimetex:

package: moodle - 1.8.2-1.el5.noarch from epel-testing
  unresolved deps: 
     mimetex


Comment 12 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-01-21 13:52:22 UTC
No response here from Jorge.  How would I go about branching mimetext for EPEL,
cvsadmin request?

Comment 14 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-01-21 17:40:27 UTC
Requested branches and EPEL maintainership.

Comment 15 Gwyn Ciesla 2008-01-22 13:27:13 UTC
Granted, built mimetex for EL-5 and EL-4.
