I propose we remove the SLE 11 repository from
Most spec files require special workaround to build at all with this
target and it requires backporting a bunch of system-critical packages
that no other release requires, and even then many packages fail to
build. And the scheduler punishes the repo for having failures.
The amount of effort needed to keep basic, key dependencies working is
growing constantly. And these workarounds means that it will be
essentially infeasible to support it in the upcoming single spec file
system, which means most key packages will no longer be able to
support it anyway.
Anyone who really needs specific packages can always link to them and
build them in their home repo.
So I think we should go ahead and remove it. Once it is removed,
packages that are updated can have the workarounds deleted
I'm 50% in favor of (ease also the transition to a unified d:l:p) as dlp3
didn't have SLE11 as target.
But in the same time, supporting users with SLE11 is also important.
Isn't it possible de copy/link dlp for SLE11 in the actual version.
Make it build once, and then let a specific repository.
(I don't know if those users need a absolute fresh package).
Didn't we have a backport repository for SLE11 where we can add those packages
Then all needed changes can occurs in d:l:p, and people wanting to refresh
SLE11 backports would be able to do it on their own repository (I guess with a
lot less rebuilds)
