Is there any reason to include HTCondor (development) version in EPEL 7 ?
The problem is there exists other SW depending on condor (particulary
condor-classads library), which needs to go to EPEL 7.
The packaging is taken from Fedora branches.
1) RPM is broken (kind of, lacks of condor-externals (if memory
well) so update fails on a system where condor (using official repo) is
But the condor-externals bundles external dependencies (!). Some of them
are already in EPEL.
2) Two repos already exist for stable and devel versions, supporting
el5, 6, 7, made by HTCondor people themselves:
I can imagine to add dummy condor-externals package, if it will help. To
make it more compatible using provids/obsoletes would be problematic I
guess: both repositories have increasing versions. HTCondor repositories
may need to use priorities.
The best way would be to package condor directly in EPEL by HTCondor.
