Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2019-04-22 13:30:37 UTC
The package fails to install now:

$ mock -r fedora-rawhide-x86_64 install yum-axelget
 Problem: conflicting requests
  - nothing provides yum-plugin-fastestmirror needed by yum-axelget-

Please fix this or retire the package.

Comment 3 Miro Hrončok 2019-04-29 20:06:16 UTC
A week has passed and this bug is still in the NEW state and the package does not install.

Please fix this or indicate that you are working ona  fix by setting the state to ASSIGNED.

After 3 such reminders, this package may be orphaned.


Comment 4 Andrea Veri 2019-05-03 23:05:28 UTC
The plugin seems not to be compatible with dnf (no time/interest from my side to port it to dnf myself) and also has a dead upstream [1], I've marked it as retired, thanks!


Comment 5 Andrea Veri 2019-05-03 23:08:00 UTC
The package remains available on EL7 as it's fully functional there, only Fedora related branches were retired.

Comment 6 Miro Hrončok 2019-05-04 15:26:32 UTC
It is not possible to retire form already released Fedora versions. The latest package version will remain there forever.
