Are you interested in (co-)maintaining dtc for the EL-4/EL-5 branches?
I would be interested to do it if you are not.
Sure, I'd be willing to do that. Note that there are two things to keep in mind
1) dtc is merged into the kernel itself as of 2.6.25, so kernel builds no longer
need an external copy installed.
2) dtc itself is on a rather rapid development pace. So it would get more
frequent updates than some Enterprise people are used to perhaps
Concerning 1: I am interested in the availability of dtc for epel not for kernel
development but rather for firmware oriented use.
Concerning 2: Might get a problem if it will not stay compatible to dtc version
17, but it would be great to have it available for a start anyways.

Somehow I knew that ;)

I think v17 is going to stay around for a while. I'll try to keep that in mind

Gah, I suck. I'm doing local mock builds for this today and will build it for
EL-4/EL-5 assuming they complete without error.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
