Description g.danti 2014-08-14 09:06:41 UTC
Description of problem:
Rsnapshot is currently missing from EPEL7. This is a significant problem for peoples that heavily use it. Anyway, fixing that problem should be trivial: the RPM package that can be downloaded from perfectly installs on a CentOS7 system. What we should do it to review the RPM to be sure that it fits EPEL packaging guide.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
yum search rsnapshot will show no packages.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable EPEL7 repository
2. yum search rsnapshot
3. no package will be found

Actual results:
no package found

Expected results:
rsnapshot should be included in EPEL7 repository

Comment 1 Steven Roberts 2014-10-21 05:25:16 UTC
I'll take this as a request to add rsnapshot to the EPEL7 repo.

Other folks contacted me directly on this.  but since there is a bug filed I'll use for the build submittal.
