Description Patrick C. F. Ernzer 2012-11-04 18:46:10 UTC
Description of problem:
could you please make privoxy available in EPEL6?

The Fedora 17 source builds fine with
# mock -r epel-6-x86_64 rebuild /tmp/privoxy-3.0.16-6.2.fc17.src.rpm

and at a cursory glance performs as expected.

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

How reproducible:
tried once

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yumdownloader --source privoxy
2. mock -r epel-6-x86_64 rebuild /tmp/privoxy-3.0.16-6.2.fc17.src.rpm 
3. copy over to RHEL6 box (the build host is Fedora 17)
4. yum localinstall privoxy-3.0.16-6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm
Actual results:
privoxy works fine so far. (a couple hours of light surfing)

Expected results:
privoxy in EPEL6 would be easier for most users

Additional info:
filed under Fedora as 'privoxy' is not a  listed component for the product 'Fedora EPEL'
