Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 769915
[RFE] rebase libmtp
Last modified: 2013-01-10 08:07:23 EST
Description of problem:
libmtp contains an internal system which can identify and mount various media players and smartphones as a disk device. The version currently in RHEL 6.2 is outdated (Dec 2009) and doesn't include many Android mobile phone devices.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This adds great functionality to systems which has been kept up to date in Fedora for a while.
I just released libmtp 1.1.2.
To rebase from 1.0.1 to 1.1.x series, all programs dependent on libmtp need to be rebuilt and released at the same time, incl. Rhythmbox, Amarok, gnomad2...
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in the
current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Because the affected component is
not scheduled to be updated in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately
unable to address this request at this time. It has been proposed for the next
release. If you would like it considered as an exception in the current
release, please ask your support representative.
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
Given that it bumps soname (meaning the scope of the change is very large), and we'd still need to do work to get bug fixes for the Android specific support, that's a no-go for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request.
You may appeal this decision by reopening this request.
