Could a CVS admin make devhelp available as a BuildRootOverrides?

Vala has a soft BR on devhelp -- the documentation files don't get
installed if devhelp is not detected at configure time, and everytime
there is a Firefox update, devhelp lags behind by days, so it will be
nice to have it permanently whitelisted.

There isn't a method to make a "permanent" whitelist.  Why does your
app have to be built against a very specific version of devhelp?

It does not have to. The problem is that the (rather frequent) Firefox
security fixes, and that devhelp is not whitelisted, means that at any
moment in time, it is quite probable that the newer version of Firefox
is already available in Koji, but the matching version of devhelp is
not.


Actually, the problem existed because of the override from last time. If the override did not exist, you would be able to build against the correct version. (Try again now.)
