Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 440558
Last modified: 2008-09-23 19:28:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Fedora 8 contains packages of the very useful rTorrent and inadyn applications,
but they are not available for EL5.
I use rTorrent in conjunction with screen on my F8 desktop for managing my
torrents. I use inadyn to update my DynDNS.org account. I would like to move
over to a CentOS-based setup for my torrenting tasks (I also run Irssi in
screen, but I see that's already available in EPEL). If rTorrent and inadyn
were available in the EPEL repository, I could easily transition to a CentOS
environment. rTorrent appears to be available from RPMForge (which I would like
to avoid), but I cannot find inadyn anywhere.
Please tell me if I am way out of line or if this is totally the wrong procedure
for this. I was looking around and it looked like creating a new "bug" was the
proper procedure for such a request.
I will create a separate bug for inadyn.
Are there any thoughts on this? Would this be a possibility in the
Gideon, I have no idea how you did that, but I have nothing to do with rtorrent
package. Reassigning to correct owner.
I'm not sure what happened, either! Thanks :).
See Bug Activity log. Initially, the bug was assigned to "irssi",
then reassigned with forgetting to update also the owner.
Is there any chance of progress being made on this? I would really love to be able to use rTorrent in RHEL/CentOS without adding any more repositories than EPEL.
Package Change Request
Package Name: rtorrent
New Branches: EL-5
Updated EPEL Owners: iburrell
Updated EPEL CC: chabotc
I am going to be maintainer for branching rtorrent on EL-5.
Have you talked with chabotc about this? Do they not want to maintain in epel?
I emailed chabotc. He said that he was busy recently and could use a co-maintainer for the package. I am taking the lead for branching and building rtorrent (and libtorrent) on EL-5. It would be fine to keep him as maintainer for EL-5 and put me as co-maintainer.
ok. Thanks. Just wanted to make sure you checked with him.
