Description of problem:

Please branch for EPEL 4 and 5 so deltarpm is usable.

Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2008-01-03 02:19:36 EST
Jonathan, it is not possible to branch popt from Fedora 8/Rawhide to EPEL, 
because popt is already in RHEL and EPEL is not allowed to replace any base 
package. Please use the popt which is already there (and bundled with RPM).

The version is older and you've to "BuildRequire: %{_includedir}/popt.h", if 
you don't want to "BuildRequire: popt" on RHEL 4, RHEL 5, Fedora 7 and then 
"BuildRequire: popt-devel" on Fedora 8 and Rawhide - at least, that's how I'm 
working smart around this.

As branching Fedora 8/Rawhide popt is never possible for EPEL, I'll close
this bug report with CAN'T FIX now.
Comment 2 Jonathan Dieter 2008-01-03 02:34:47 EST
Sorry, that's my bad.  I completely forgot that F8 had changed the BuildRequire
to popt-devel, so I just assumed popt as a whole wasn't in RHEL (and knew it
wasn't in EPEL).

My apologies for the noise.
