Description of problem:
I would like to see kmymoney in EL6. I think it would need to be 4.5.3, instead of 4.6.x, because 4.6 requires KDE 4.3.5. If you have time to build this package for EL, that would be great. Otherwise, I would be interested in helping out. Thanks.
If the latest kmymoney can't be supported in epel, then I'd be less inclined to want to support older/unsupported versions there.
That said, if you want to work-on and support that, you have my complete blessing (and condolences). :)
I'm able to build the Fedora 15 kmymoney-4.5.3 src rpm in EL6 if I have it build with the local copy of kdchart in kmymoney. I don't see kdchart in EL6 or EPEL. Would it be OK to build kmymoney with its own copy of kdchart? Should I take this to the EPEL mailing list? Thanks for your help.
It's fine to use the embedded copy, using the one from koffice/calligra isn't possible on epel.
OK, I'm not clear on the next step. Should I request an EPEL branch for the existing kmymoney package, even though this is based on an old version of the kmymoney package? Should I submit a request for a new kmymoney package for epel?
and do it here
OK, I see that I can put the Package Change Request comment here, but it won't let me set the Fedora-cvs flag. I've created a Fedora Account, but I'm not sure if there's something else I need to do (this is my first package to work on).
Ah, you need to be sponsored first, see
and to a lesser degree,
In this case, I'd be happy to be your sponsor into the packager group, serve as mentor and generally provide help where needed.
What's your FAS username?
Thanks! My username is benc.
Hello - is there any update on this? Or do I need to take the next step?
Looks like something is wrong, I tried to sponsor you and got an error:
benc can not apply to packager.
You may have skipped some step(s), creating your FAS account. Let's review,
that includes 4 steps to follow, did you do all of these?
OK, now I have.
to request a new el6 branch be created for kmymoney (feel free to list me, rdieter, as comaintainer for now, while you're still learning).
Hmm, I still can't seem to raise the fedora-cvs flag...
1. your fas account email must match your bugzilla one
2. FAS group memeberships takes a little while to sync (should be done by now, try again)

Changing version to '19'.
(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
