Subject: Removing Publican and fop from EPEL5
To: Devel(a)lists.fedoraproject.org, Fedora Docs Project
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
The last week or so has seen a couple of patches going into fop in the
Fedora repositories. I recently became a co-maintainer of fop in
EPEL5 and was trying to bring fop into current there. Unfortunately
there are many dependency failures there that it's going to be a lot
of work to bring it up to where we need it. The actual need, from my
point of view, is to get Publican working properly. fop provides the
engine for creating PDFs in Publican and is a necessary function for
the Fedora Docs project. That said, the current version of Publican
in EPEL5 is very old and outdated. Near current version of Publican
is already in EPEL6 and I believe fop is in RHEL6 repositories.
I say all that to ask this: Is anyone currently using fop or Publican
in EPEL5 or can we get rid of those bits?
I have no problem working to bring fop upto speed in EPEL5 if someone
needs it but I'd hate to do all the work if no one is using it.
