Does anyone know if and when RPMs for “graphite-web” will be available in CentOS 7? I know that this relates to EPEL, but maybe someone here can help me out or point me to soemplace/-one who knows.
Thx and regards,
There’s a .spec file that the author ran through mock on EL7:
(If you need to know how to generate an RPM from a .spec see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_create_an_RPM_package )
You can also likely use this Fedora tree:
For EPEL’s process, see their web site (which also contains a procedure for getting package updates created and finding the maintainer of a package that you are interested in):
In the case of graphite-web, that data is here:
The package has been approved for inclusion in EPEL 7 but was not yet built/released and is not in testing. (as per guidelines minimum of 2
weeks in testing prior to release)
The only person who can give you their plans for a specific package is the point of contact package administrator, jsteffan in this case. Typically these things go faster if someone takes the initiative in testing an updated .spec and package, sending the SRPM to the maintainer instead of a request for them to drop what they are doing to start a project for your needs.
If you are prioritizing “stability” CentOS 7 seems like a dubious choice to begin with though.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to answer my “nosy” questions.
That’s as always “in the eye of the beholder” ;)
