Created attachment 398631 [details]
devel/bouncycastle.spec patch to allow building for EPEL5.
Attached is a patch to devel/bouncycastle.spec that allows it to be built
on EPEL5 as well. Tested within a mock build.
Please could you consider branching an EPEL5 build.
If you feel unable/unwilling to do so then in a week or so I'll make
the branch myself and maintain the EPEL build.
This patch also has a fix for the rawhide build.

Hi' I have been dealing with bouncycastle updates for the last year. I have no interest in EPEL, so go ahead. Ask for cvs.
As for the ">= 1.7". This does what we need it to do. It covers both icedtea and openjdk, leaving gcj out. So it was intentional. However since icedtea is obsolete now, it doesn't really matter what we put there anymore. See e.g.
