Bug ID: 1828059
Summary: Review Request: boost1.73 - The free peer-reviewed
portable C++ source libraries
Product: Fedora EPEL
Component: Package Review
QA Contact: extras-qa(a)fedoraproject.org
Target Milestone: ---
A few packages require a fairly recent Boost version, which EPEL does not
provide. EPEL 6 and 7 have had Boost-1.48, Boost-1.59 and Boost-1.69 for a
while (as parallel installations), thanks also to Robert Scheck and Haïkel
Guémar. The very same way those versioned Boost packages have been built for
EPEL, it is therefore proposed to build Boost-1.73 for EPEL 7 and 8, as a
parallel installation to the currently officially supported Boost packages
(Boost-1.53 on EPEL 7 and Boost-1.66 on EPEL 8).
To minimize the work (and the support!) to be required, both the pristine
Boost-1.73 package on Fedora 33 and versioned Boost-1.69 on EPEL 7 serve as a
basis, as they cleanly build on at least EPEL 8 (and most probably on EPEL 7).
If relevant in the future, for EPEL 6, work-arounds of Boost148 may have to be
* Review request for Boost-1.69 on EPEL 7:
* Review request for Boost-1.59 on EPEL 7:
* Review request for Boost-1.57 on EPEL 6 and 7:
* Review request for Boost-1.48 on EPEL 5 and 6:
* Review request for Boost-1.41 on EPEL 5:
* Feature request for Boost-1.73 on Fedora:
Note that at the time of writing (26 April 2020), Boost 1.73.0 is still
available as RC 1 only. It should become the official Boost 1.73.0 version very
soon by now.
