Description Robert Vogelgesang 2012-01-13 10:59:28 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #244275 +++

Description of problem (copied from Bug #244275):
fail2ban doesn't require shorewall to function, and in fact, as we ship it, it
makes use of the Fedora firewall - installing an extra firewall which is the not
used in the default configuration is a bit gratuitous and confusing to the user.

Also, the Requires: tcpwrappers isn't needed unless the user decides to enable
the tcpwrapper action (disabled by default)

Additional information:
Bug #244275 contains suggestions and possible patches for a fix, but was closed with NOTABUG as noted in the comment from the EPEL maintainer:
--- Additional comment from maxamillion@fedoraproject.org on 2012-01-12 22:46:49 EST ---

Since this is just the EPEL package and I don't maintain fail2ban for Fedora, I will be keeping it in line with Fedora proper. Please feel free to discuss this with the Fedora package maintainer.

As I wrote in some comments in Bug #244275, I'm interested in a fix for Fedora,
which is why I file this bug now.
