scl-utils: FTBFS in rawhide
Last modified: 2013-09-03 18:29:05 EDT
Your package scl-utils failed to build from source in current rawhide.
For details on mass rebuild see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_20_Mass_Rebuild
This package doesn't build because it treats a symlink as directory:
error: Not a directory: /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/scl-utils-20130529-1.fc19.x86_64/etc/scl/conf
A fix would be this:
diff --git a/scl-utils.spec b/scl-utils.spec
index f2fa7fa..e0523d4 100644
@@ -50,7 +50,8 @@ rm -rf %buildroot
I am not going to apply this fix, because this bug also is present in f19, which lets me think this package is unmaintained and should be orphaned.'
The package is maintained, I just don't have that much time for it, sorry for that. Thank you for the patch, I will apply the fix in all relevant branches.

11 open bugs, and the fact this package FTBFSes on f19, f20 and rawhide speak a different language:
Besides this, the fact this package adds /opt/rh alone would be sufficient reason to demand this package to be removed from Fedora.

Have you seen the number of bugs for components like yum? In this case we have 3 RFEs, 1 that I consider deferred and this one (fixed in f19, f20 and rawhide), ending with 6 bugs - not that bad I'd say.

Please don't take this personally but you obviously don't know the background here. Adding the directory is actually the main purpose of this package.
