Trying to build wesnoth for EPEL-5.  Had the branch created, copied
the bits from FC-6, and built.  The failure is below.  The crucial
part is in the job.log:

ERROR: Bad build req: No Package Found for fribidi-devel. Exiting.

Except that fribidi-devel exists in RHEL5.  The Fedora fribidi
maintainer is at a loss:


. . .as am I.

I've been banging my head against this for while.  Any thoughts?
fribidi is in RHEL5 Client but not RHEL5 Server, though I thought EPEL
built against a combined set of packages from the two...
Is anybody with the proper access to the builders is working on fixing this
soon? Complains like this have shown up multiple times in the past few days.
Is this ticket meant for fixing this?
Yes its being worked on and no, people endlessly commenting on epel-devel
instead of the ticket or the infrastructure list doesn't make it get done
more quickly.


Again, from the begining, should have built it against CentOS.

I totally disagree and I'm glad that we build against RHEL, as the target was RHEL, to which CentOS should be 100% compatible. Which it is, but sometimes with a delay of 24 to 48 hours (normal updates) or a few weeks (packages that are part of a quarterly update; new release). That is a quite significant factor for EPEL, because if we'd build with CentOS we couldn't serve the RHEL users properly, as they now and then will end up with broken deps.
