My first question is the correct repoquery command. I'm doing, in a centos 6
repoquery --whatrequires cfitsio --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=epel -s|sort | uniq
So, I did a check, and all of those will rebuild except wcslib. So
wcslib will need a bit of work. It builds on i686 but not x86_64.
When you say you want to fix the bugs. are you meaning apply some
patches, or update to a newer version?
If it's just applying patches, and leaving the library the same
version, you wouldn't need to rebuild anything.
Those bugs have been there for 9 years, and EPEL6 is going to be
retired in 7 months. Is it going to be worth the effort?
Second, I understand that I have to create a buildroot override and
the owners rebuild their packages. Later, to create a common update in bodhi. I can't
create the update because I'm do not have the required permissions. Could a proven
packager coordinate this?
I don't have time until mid week (wednesday I believe).
If you decide it's worth the effort, and nobody else has volunteered,
I could give it a try.
