Description David 2022-01-06 09:55:54 UTC
Please branch and build ShellCheck in epel8.

Comment 1 David 2022-01-10 08:04:38 UTC
Will anyone be able to branch and build ShellCheck in epel8? Thanks!

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2022-01-10 16:18:16 UTC
Yes, I have requested branches for epel8 and epel9.

Anyone's help towards this is still welcome.

Comment 3 greg.hellings 2022-01-11 14:18:56 UTC
There are a large number of dependencies missing from both EPEL8 and EPEL9. Personally I have no use for later EPEL builds as I solely use Fedora now. If someone wants to try building, current Rawhide is 0.7.2 and in EPEL8 it needs, at minimum,

ghc-{Diff,QuickCheck,aeson,array,base,bytestring,containers,deepseq,directory,filepath,mtl,parsec,process,regex-tdfa}-prof  packages to also be branched.

There are even more missing from the EPEL9 repo.

Until Rawhide is updated I don't want to try with 0.8.0 as I am not entirely sure how to read Haskell dependencies and, as I mentioned, I don't really have a use for EPEL builds. If someone else wants to take over curation of the EPEL side of the package, I'm happy to do that if I can.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2022-01-11 15:40:17 UTC
Ah sorry, Greg, apologies - I missed that you are down as EPEL maintainer.

Not sure if we will be able to build current versions for EPEL 8,
but that should become possible for EPEL 9
(though even ghc has not been bootstrapped yet: I am starting to look at that).

I hope even a slightly older version of ShellCheck would still be useful for EPEL 8:
anyway let's see what is possible.

I could also setup a epel8 copr if that helps (even in the meantime).

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2022-01-16 07:09:58 UTC
I would be happy to be epel maintainer if you don't have time.

I am starting work now on epel9 bootstrapping and also finally epel8.

Or if you prefer you can also request the epel8 and epel9 branches now
and I can work in those too.

Comment 6 David 2022-01-28 15:58:43 UTC
Great news it is getting built! Any update?

Comment 7 David 2022-06-12 08:54:36 UTC
@petersen Are you still building ShellCheck for epel9? Thanks.

Comment 8 Jens Petersen 2022-06-13 11:27:18 UTC
I plan to yes, sorry it is taking so long:
also I don't really want to block others from helping out.

I spent some time preparing an minor refresh for Rawhide Haskell,
which I hope to push out in the days/week and use that as the basis
for EPEL9.

Sorry for how long it is taking.

Comment 9 Jens Petersen 2022-06-13 11:30:35 UTC
Greg, can you set me as the EPEL maintainer then?

Otherwise I am not able to request the branches formally.

Comment 10 greg.hellings 2022-06-13 14:57:35 UTC
Unfortunately I have no access to the settings page of that project as Dridi is the on one with admin access. I'm happy for you to have maintainership of the EPEL branch, but it will need Dridi or someone with superpowers on the site to change that setting. I can't even find a way to remove myself from the EPEL maintainer list on that page and the direct Settings link is a 403.

Comment 11 Jens Petersen 2022-06-14 13:56:48 UTC
Thanks, Dridi has added me now to the package comaintainers.
