I have been asked to branch grip for EL-4 and EL-5. Unfortunately it depends on id3lib. Could you therefore please also maintain id3lib for EL-4 and EL-5?
Sure I can create EPEL branches, but if you have a package using id3lib, perhaps it would be better for you to take over id3lib maintainership. I have plenty of packages to maintain (circa 200) and took over id3lib when I took over *all* of Anvil's packages when he left Fedora due to lack of time. None of my packahes actually use id3lib so I would be happy to find a new owner for it.
Sure. I can take it. I will request ownership.
Ok, all needed rights granted, as there is no (findable) review ticket for id3lib, I'll do the CVS request here:
Package Change Request
Package Name: id3lib
New Branches: EPEL-4 EPEL-5
New EPEL Owners: email@example.com
New EPEL CC: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
please use fedora account system names in requests. ;)
would you recommend the latest version from devel from both branches? That is what I usually do for new EL-4, EL-5 packages.
Yes thats what I would recommend esp since all thats changed the last few years is a few packaging fixes, no new upstream release for ages.
id3lib successfully built for EL-4, EL-5
