Description Robert Scheck 2009-05-01 22:58:16 UTC
Description of problem:
Please build latest libical for EPEL 4 and 5, the 0.4x package from Rawhide.
Because libical >= 0.42 is what Zarafa requires. 

As far as I can see, only sunbird requires libical on EPEL and this only on
EPEL 5. When looking to Rawhide, building sunbird with newer libical should
work as well - adding sunbird maintainer on Cc to verify that.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2009-05-01 23:07:36 UTC
I noticed, that libical is EL-5 only currently. Is there any interest by the
libical maintainers to branch and maintain EL-4 as well?

Comment 2 Lubomir Rintel 2009-05-02 10:14:18 UTC
I built the new version in EL-5 branch and verified that it's binary compatible with the older one for sunbird to run.

Handing the bug over to Rishi to decide about the EL-4 branch (I have not interest in it).

Comment 3 Debarshi Ray 2009-05-02 12:05:40 UTC
Although I have no interest in EL-4, I would not object to anyone else who might want to do it. Robert, would you be interested in doing it yourself?

Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2009-05-02 12:19:04 UTC
I verified, that sunbird is still building with newer libical in case if it
shouldn't be binary compatible with the older version.

As libical will be a dependency of my Zarafa package, I think, I'm going to
maintain it on EL-4. Lubomir, question for me is, whether you still want to
care about libical on EL-5 or not (when remembering to our yesterday IRC
talk where you've mentioned, that you're using sunbird no longer that active
as in the past)? Means in the end, that I would be willing to maintain the
libical package on EL-4 and EL-5 even. Maybe you can let me know about this.

[16:39:24] < rsc> lkundrak: I made a comment to the libical bug, maybe you can let me know.
[16:45:02] < lkundrak> rsc: so you'd like to take care of libical in EL-5? I can orphan it in pkgdb, you can take it then
[16:45:26] < rsc> lkundrak: okay, we can do that, if it's okay for you
[16:47:58] < lkundrak> rsc: I released the package. Feel free to take it. And thanks!
[16:48:16] < rsc> lkundrak: Taken. Do you want me to approve watch*, commit*, approve*?
[16:49:39] < lkundrak> rsc: no need to. I don't even remember applying for it, dunno why it's there :)
[16:50:04] < rsc> lkundrak: okay, so I would remove you then. If you some day want to change it, just let me know ;)
