Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 511310
socat should build with compat-readline5-devel

Description of problem:
The readline package in rawhide will be soon updated to new 6.0 release which changes the license to GPLv3+. As socat is GPLv2, it should be built with the older readline (packaged in compat-readline5) to avoid licensing incompatibility or switched to libedit which is compatible with GPLv3, but doesn't support UTF-8.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Odd, I hadn't seen these before on "My bugzilla" page. Nor did I receive any emails regarding these. If it hadn't been for Steve emailing me these pointers, I'd still not have known. I'm active in fedora-devel and irc, please next time email me directly or ping me on irc before starting such a procedure? Thanks.
I will take care of the socat issues today.
socat-188.8.131.52-1.fc12 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 12.
socat-184.108.40.206-1.fc12 has been pushed to the Fedora 12 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
