do we have any ETA for the update, as my users are getting a bit impatient :).

Is there any way we can help?

Comment 3 Galen Seitz 2014-10-27 23:04:12 UTC

I thought I might find it at, but it's not there either.  Obviously I'm not looking in the correct place, as I see that Oliver has apparently tested the package.

So far the package is only requested to go into epel testing, and there for not available in the repo right now. 

Hope that helps to test. 

Cheers Oliver
