Description Mohan Boddu 2018-07-19 19:21:36 UTC
epylog failed to build from source in Fedora rawhide

For details on the mass rebuild see:
Please fix epylog at your earliest convenience and set the bug's status to
ASSIGNED when you start fixing it. If the bug remains in NEW state for 8 weeks,
epylog will be orphaned. Before branching of Fedora 30,
epylog will be retired, if it still fails to build.

I will evaluate whether it cna be fixed or EOLd

Comment 5 Stephen John Smoogen 2018-07-25 00:58:28 UTC
Fixed for this release. Much of the code is from 2003 and will need a deep rewrite/rethink to make it work for F30 and above
