Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2009-12-07 05:12:36 UTC
rawhide version is openvpn-2.1-0.39.rc22
EPEL-5 version is openvpn-2.1-0.30.rc15.el5,

Can EPEL version be upgraded.

I did a scratch build at:

I am also interested in co-maintaining his package if you dont mind :)

The current version of OpenVPN is out of RC and is V2.1.1.  Perhaps OpenVPN on EPEL 5 can be upgraded to that?  RC15 is pretty old now.

I'm actually working on a few openvpn bugs and updates with the manitainer's blessing, and should take care of this this week.
