Dear Package owner,
On Monday June 28th at the EPEL meeting on IRC we agreed to an initial
target date of August 15th for having all packages built for EL-6.
This is a summary of EPEL packages for Enterprise Linux 6 that you own
which have not yet been built.
Current versions of gtkwave that I'd like to build in EL-6 use the Judy
array library, which is not yet in EPEL. I wrote to the maintainer some
time ago about this but haven't seen a response. The version of the
library in Fedora isn't recent either, so perhaps the maintainer is
AWOL. Haven't had time to investigate that yet.
This is built on Text::Aspell, which in turn is built on aspell. Whilst
aspell is included in EL-6, it's only there for the purposes of building
the hunspell dictionaries and there are no aspell dictionaries available
(#590700). I think the way forward here is to bring aspell-en (at least)
into EPEL-6. I don't know if the aspell-en maintainer is willing to do
that themselves yet. I did look at the Text::Hunspell module as an
alternative approach but it's broken (CPAN RT#39824) and seems to be
dead upstream (upstream doesn't know how to fix it anyway), which is a
shame given that it's the official perl binding of hunspell.
