Hi,
the RHEL 6 at build.opensuse.org seems to be a rather stripped down
version. Even quite basic packages like libicu-devel seem to be
missing
(https://build.opensuse.org/package/show?package=xerces-c&project=Application%3AGeo)
although Red Hat issues updates for them
(http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1815.html) which indicates
they are part of the official distro.
Can anyone explain that? Is there a plan to update RHEL just like CentOS?

It is as complete as RedHat ships it. We are just not allowed to use
to the update packages there.

CentOS and ScientificLinux are said to be compatible, so you use their
distro to build for RHEL6

Thank you and best regards,
Michael
