spice-protocol package is present in Optional RHN channels, It's package with Spice header files and is not dependency of qemu-kvm or any other package.
this is the only one src.rpm which is not included in source isos. imho it'd be nice to add (~70K).
Since RHEL 6.3 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Adding people that can help with this. It sounds like spice-protocol was supposed to go into the 6.3 beta, but didn't make it.
Moving a package from Optional to Base is a product management decision. Switching components.
it's missing from the final 6.3 what's more it's even missing from 6.3 final optional too (at least version 0.10.3 which requires for 6.3's finale spice-server)
Moving to the spice-protocol component. spice-protocol-0.10.1-5.el6 is the version that the maintainers marked for RHEL 6.3. Will let them weigh in on whether a newer version is needed.
spice-server and spice-protocol have quite a few patches, but the spice-protocol package shipped with 6.3 should be enough for the 6.3 spice-server otherwise we wouldn't have been able to build the latter.
