i386 versions of openssl097a and compat-readline43 for x86_64 channel
Last modified: 2010-10-23 03:18:48 EDT
Can we please provide the i386 versions of openssl097a and compat-readline43 packages in the x86_64 channel? These are both compat packages whose "regular" variants are being shipped as multilib already.
I have talked to the openssl maintainer and he sees no problem in this. I will ask also the readline maintainer but the package looks like there don't seem to be any issues too.
The readline maintainer sees no problem with providing the compat package as multilib.
Both openssl097a and compat-readline43 look good and could be used as multilib.
I've checked that they don't have any special dependencies and can be installed on a rhel5 boxwithout requiring any other packages.
We can add these packages to distill config to make them multilib.
If the change is needed before 5.4, we could push it to rhn:
b) via an errata
I'd prefer b) to ensure at least minimal testing and customers would be notified about the change.

Change checked into distill and will appear in the next compose.
with today's nightly/x86_64
$ ls -1 openssl097a* compat-readline43*
Requested packages are now multi-lib. Moving to VERIFIED.
