This bug is VERY old, do we have an udpate/patch for this?

[Fedora maintainer speaking - I do not maintain rt in EPEL]

> This bug is VERY old, do we have an udpate/patch for this?
None that I am aware of. rt3 was abandoned upstream.

In Fedora >= 21, rt3 has been replaced with rt4 (rt-4.2.x) and is effectively abandoned/dead in Fedora 20. It's only still present in F20, because I missed to EOL it in time before F20 was released and because packages can't be removed from Fedora after release.

I do not think trying to backport the changes from rt4 or trying to develop actual bug-fixes is feasible (checking other distros could be worth a try, though).

Instead I'd recommend to remove rt3 from all EPELs and - should there be sufficient interest - somebody to try adding rt4 (4.0.x or 4.2.x) to EPEL. However, due to the long chain of deps on (modern) perl-modules and CentOS/RHEL's packaging policies, I would expect this to be a challenging, almost impossible task.

Comment 3 David A. Cafaro 2015-04-24 16:24:50 UTC
Thanks for the update and info.  I'll take this back to the Security Team and see how we want to handle this.  We have been working on policy to have packages that are abandoned removed so that's less of an issue than the dependency worries (which will take some thought).

This message is a reminder that EPEL 6 is nearing its end of life. Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for EPEL 6 on 2020-11-30. It is our policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a 'version' of 'el6'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later EPEL version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before EPEL 6 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Comment 5 Ben Cotton 2020-11-30 15:43:18 UTC
EPEL el6 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2020-11-30. EPEL el6 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
EPEL please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
