Description of problem:
Package perl-RPM-Specfile has branches for RHEL and is built for this
release as well:
But is not included in RHEL release (neither 5Server nor 5Client nor 4AS).
I would like to see it in RHEL since we need it for RHN Satellite. And the presence of RHEL branch and not availability in RHEL cause us problem. See BZ 476500 for mored details.
From bug 476500 which describes the same thing for RHEL 5:
We don't need this. The only place where we use the thing is satcon-make-rpm.pl
in perl-Satcon, and that can easily be rewritten by not using the RPM::Specfile
module at all.
Plus, if the package is suddenly in RHEL, and we still ship it with RHN
Satellite (the package will still be on already-released ISOs), we might be for
a version conflict.
The correct solution is to rewrite perl-Satcon not to use RPM::Specfile.
Hmmm. The script satcon-make-rpm.pl is not used anywhere in Satellite, and as a
matter of fact, it is no longer shipped in perl-Satcon (I removed it from its
So it's like -2.
It was decided this package won't be needed in RHEL. This will be created in EPEL.
