Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 608594
query about lack of EL-6 branch for perl-Module-Find
Last modified: 2010-09-15 02:51:26 EDT
I'm chasing down the dependency tree for RT3 in EL-6, for some reason perl-Module-Find doesn't have an EL-6 branch.
Is this because you're not interested in maintaining it any more or is there another reason? I'm happy to (co)maintain EL branches if this would help.
More confusingly, it's actually only showing up for x86_64.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release. This request is not yet committed for
Is this bug intended to be against RHEL or EPEL?
Initially it was filed against the EPEL5 branch of perl-Module-Find I was confused as to why it hadn't branched from EPEL-5 into EPEL-6.
Then I found that the reason it didn't branch was because RHEL-6 includes perl-Module-Find.noarch but ONLY in the x86_64 repositories.
Because it's a noarch package we wouldn't generally branch it for EPEL since it's in RHEL.
a) was this deliberate from ppc and i386 in RHEL 6 ?
b) any chance it could be added to the ppc/i386 branches ?
"a" should read, "was this a deliberate exclusion from ppc and i386 in RHEL 6 ?"
perl-Module-Find is a build requirement of one of the only-on-x86_64 virt tools... it's essentially an implementation detail. It's intentional that it's only on the platform where it's required.
Now, we do need to find a good solution as to how to handle this between RHEL and EPEL. That's still being worked on.
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
I suppose you should sent this request to EPEL list and find out how will be solved these issues.

EPEL are basically just going to rebuild the RHEL-6 SRPMS. Are you aware of any mechanism available for monitoring Red Hat releases for *only* certain packages, rather than all Errata? (So we can put through the appropriate rebuilds)
I suppose someone working more on EPEL was generating a list of packages, which changed. Maybe spot could help?
We've now generated some scripts for keeping an eye on EPEL pkgs vs RHEL pkgs so I'm happy for you to close off this ticket.
