Version freeze happens before public beta.  Too late this time.

Any chance this could be resolved "LATER" or left open and with a different
version? It still would be nice to have an RPM for gphoto2 2.1.1...

I tried to make one myself, starting with the 2.1.0-5 spec, but I get this on build:

checking for libgphoto2 >= 2.1.1... Package libgphoto2 was not found in the
pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgphoto2.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgphoto2' found

configure: error: Library requirements (libgphoto2 >= 2.1.1) not met; consider
adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a
nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

Any hints? Is there another place you would boot me to so I can ask about this?
I apologize if this is the wrong forum or if my comment is inappropriate.

I made some rpms and submitted them to the incoming.redhat.com.
They should show up in the contrib section soon. Look for
