[RFE] Please include libsigrok in EPEL

... as well as libsigrok-devel, sigrok-cli, etc.
Sigrok provides access to various devices such as thermometers and hygrometers, which could be very useful for monitoring datacenter environmental conditions, where people tend to put RHEL machines, more than Fedora, I guess.
What is the version of glib packaged with RHEL? libsigrok requires at least glib 2.28, and the just released libsigrok 0.2.1 will require glib 2.32 .
I've had a quick chat with the guys in #epel. RHEL6 provides glib2-2.22, which is way too old.
The very old libsigrok 0.1.1 release can work with 2.22, but this release does not include support for hygrometers and thermometers. Thus, I am marking this as CANTFIX.
If someone is willing to co-maintain libsigrok 0.1.1 for EPEL6, I have nothing against it.
You're right Alex, thanks for investigating this ! Sorry for the nuisance, I could have checked that before...
