Description Garrett Holmstrom 2010-06-04 16:23:45 UTC
Comment 1 Todd Zullinger 2010-06-04 18:36:46 UTC
This is blocked while we wait for a decision on what RHEL6 will do. The beta has 126.96.36.199 included and we can't ship anything newer in EPEL. It's not worth the time to update to 188.8.131.52 in EPEL only to update again to 1.6.6 or 1.7.x in a few weeks or so. Or at least, I don't think it is. The rawhide packages do build fine in mock against EL-5 (and EL-4, and EL-6). See the RHEL bug for links to some built packages.

Okee dokee; I'll wait for that. > The rawhide packages do build fine in mock against EL-5 (and EL-4, and EL-6). > See the RHEL bug for links to some built packages. I'm not so sure about that part. Then again I might just be doing something wrong... https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=600425
Comment 3 Todd Zullinger 2010-06-11 16:34:40 UTC
Discussed this a bit on epel-devel-list yesterday. Any help testing packages there would be welcome. http://www.redhat.com/archives/epel-devel-list/2010-June/msg00023.html

Comment 5 Todd Zullinger 2010-08-25 21:45:32 UTC
Unfortunately, no. The hang up at this point is emacs support. http://www.redhat.com/archives/epel-devel-list/2010-August/msg00148.html Any help from emacs users (or anyone sufficiently interested) would be most welcome.
Comment 6 Garrett Holmstrom 2010-08-25 22:16:09 UTC
The RPM Forge people dealt with this by grabbing the latest git-init.el file that *does* work with el5's version of emacs and building the RPM using that. It's sort of a kludge, but I think it beats being stuck with an already-ancient version for the rest of the release's lifetime.
Comment 7 Jesse Keating 2010-09-20 19:29:24 UTC
Garrett's solution seems fine to me.
Comment 8 Todd Zullinger 2010-09-20 19:50:32 UTC
Sorry I missed it. But it's not a solution. The RPM Forge packages simply use the git-init.el that we ship. What's missing is vc-git.el, which is now included in emacs. We need to figure out whether we can grab the vc-git.el from newer emacs or resurrect the old one from git. I'm not sure if either will work, we may have to grab the newer vc-git.el and patch it to work with older vc.el in emacs on EL-5. If anyone here knows an emacs user who understands the vc integration and would be willing to help test and provide guidance, it would be excellent.
