Description Axel Thimm 2007-08-06 13:21:20 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #239517 +++

As a temporary measure, I'm excluding ppc64 for mediawiki builds until you can
sort out a full (and working) patch for ocaml.

MediaWiki requires ocaml?  Since when?

(I seem to have missed a bit of background in the matter)

IOW ever since ;)

There's a new version of OCaml in Rawhide which David Woodhouse
has patched to support ppc64.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here:

Comment 5 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-05-14 14:04:54 UTC

OCaml is available on ppc64 in Fedora >= 9.  If you still want this, please
reopen the bug and change product / version to Fedora / Rawhide.

Comment 6 Richard W.M. Jones 2008-05-14 14:05:41 UTC
