Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by smooge.

The libgeotiff package was retired for some reason out EPEL but not by the maintainers? [Probably a quick what do we do with this and move on.]

Hello,

It seems like the libgeotiff package has been removed from the RHEL6 repository. We could not find any news on the subject. Does anyone
know if the package has been removed intentionally?

Our servers show the installed version to be as follows:

Name : libgeotiff
Arch : x86_64
Version : 1.2.5
Release : 5.el6
Size : 4.4 M
Repo : installed
From repo : epel
Summary : GeoTIFF format library
URL : http://www.remotesensing.org/geotiff/geotiff.html

Currently we cannot install some software to our new servers due to the
missing libgeotiff dependency. For example "yum install gdal" fails.

Regards,

Mika Heiskanen / FMI

the process to remove the package was started before May this year but
it was not finished (the package was retired in packagedb:
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/package/libgeotiff/)

Before recently, a second step was required to actually remove the
package from the repos. This is now automated, which is why the package
is now not available via the mirrors. I do not know how retired the
package, because it cannot be easily queried right now, but it might
have been Orion, who built the package the last time.

You can still download the package from kojipkgs if it helps you now:
https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org//packages/libgeotiff/1.2.5/5.el6/x86_64/libgeotiff-1.2.5-5.el6.x86_64.rpm

However it is not maintained currently in EPEL 5 and 6. To get it back
into EPEL 6 someone needs to step up as a new maintainer and ask for a
re-review:

Don't think it was me. CC'ing Volker and Devrim.

Can we get this resolved ASAP? I'm facing lots of broken deps preventing installs.

It was retired in 2011 by rezso:
https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/scm-commits/2011-January/549953.html

I do not know whether it was unretired and retired again afterwards.

This was reviewed and re-added a while back.
