Description Kenyon Ralph 2019-03-08 08:39:04 UTC
Please package createrepo_c 0.12.1 for EPEL 7. I would like to be able to use the --set-timestamp-to-revision option introduced in that version so that I can generate reproducible repo data. Thanks.

You can try package from our nightly copr repo -

Comment 6 Tuomo Soini 2019-04-01 08:45:10 UTC
This package Obsoletes createrepo package which afaik is still in rhel7. Epel package must not oboslete or replace core os packages.

Comment 7 Pavla Kratochvilova 2019-04-01 10:17:51 UTC
Jarda Mracek made a patch to make the obsolete conditional (if Fedora > 30 or RHEL > 7):

Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2019-04-01 10:40:25 UTC
createrepo_c-0.12.2-2.el7 has been submitted as an update to Fedora EPEL 7.

Comment 9 Carl George 2019-04-03 14:13:55 UTC
Pavla, it's mentioned in the comments of that some symlinks need to be conditionalized as well (  Can that change be made to the epel7 branch and a new build submitted?

Comment 10 Pavla Kratochvilova 2019-04-04 12:19:03 UTC
Carl, I will submit new build for epel7 once the PR gets merged.

Comment 11 Carl George 2019-04-05 21:14:15 UTC
Pavla, I just realized this request is invalid.  createrepo_c is in RHEL Extras.

$ is-it-in-rhel --release 7 --channel createrepo_c
createrepo_c is in RHEL 7;   version: 0.10.0;   arch: x86_64;   channel: rhel-7-server-extras-rpms

By policy, a newer version cannot be shipped in EPEL.  In fact the existing one needs to be retired.

Kenyon, since the EPEL package must be retired, I'm changing the product of this bug to RHEL 7 to request this update from the RHEL maintainer.
