Comment 1 Vitezslav Crhonek 2019-09-16 13:04:07 UTC
Thanks for bug report and patch!

I've updated the package in Fedora Rawhide, but I see the bug is reported for epel6... I can't do the fix there, as jwhois is part of RHEL6 and thus it's not part of epel6. I can do the fix in epel7, if that's what you meant (guessing from NVR of the component jwhois-4.0-45.el7.x86_64). Is that correct?

Comment 2 William E Little Jr 2019-09-16 17:23:36 UTC
I apologize for the confusion, you are correct, this should have been filed for epel7(I've updated the field now). Thank you for the correction.

If there is anything else I need to do, please let me know.
