Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 850827
missing requires: mediawiki
Last modified: 2012-12-10 23:42:36 EST
Description of problem:
Please ask mediawiki119 package maintainer to request f18 branch of mediawiki119 and build it as I see this package got built in f18 but missing Requires: mediawiki119
You can also request in its review bug 820452
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The package maintainer has decided not to build mediawiki119 for F18, since this is meant for el5/el6 only.
Instead, I have requested mediawiki119-HTTP302Found to be blocked from F*.
Block request: https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/5319
After reconsideration, the mediawiki119 package will come to Fedora 18, and this package will come to.
Thanks for filing this bug report, and I hope this was the hoped outcome.
mediawiki119 is in F18 updates-testing.
Why wasn't mediawiki119 renamed to mediawiki in F18 and replaced original outdated 1.16.5 package with numerous known security issues?
mediawiki119 is a different package with different maintainers.
The mediawiki119 package was so that you can safely run a yum update on mediawiki, and you will not get into problems because of differences in configuration files and so on.
So, the plan is to continue with such a naming for F19 and onwards? Or will eventually old and unmaintained MediaWiki issues get removed?
I suppose this can be closed as packages are already in repositories.
