scipy for epel
Last modified: 2009-07-14 11:38:25 EDT
Description of request:
can we please have scipy for EPEL? Thank you.
Until I have an EPEL machine that I have access to locally associated with my
day job, I am not going to maintain any EPEL packages. I'll happily let another
Fedora contributor maintain scipy as part of EPEL. There is no requirement that
the maintainer for the Fedora branches must be the person who maintains the EPEL
branch of the same package.
I just got a new data server which I will be installing CentOS onto for my
dayjob. Once this is up and running I then have a compelling reason to take on
the responsibility of maintaining scipy for EPEL... if someone else doesn't beat
me too it.
Jef, ok. As I need this package to satisfy my dependencies, I propose you that
I'll take ownership of this package for time being and after you get comfortable
we can hand-over you the ownership/co-maintaining. Is that ok for you?
I've got me local centos box up and running. Let me make the EPEL branch.
Do you have a specific Fedora you want the EPEL branch to be filled with initially?
Package Change Request
Package Name: scipy
New Branches: EL-4 EL-5
Updated EPEL Owners: jspaleta,mmahut
scipy for EL-5 has been built and should be on its way to the EL-5 testing
repository. I'm working on EL-4 now.
We need to start thinking hard about organizing scientific computing software
via a SIG.
I'm working with my Astronomy SIG and trying to get this software as well for
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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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.
