[Scitech] Re: Orphaning openbabel

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hello Dominik and everyone else,

The next release of Molsketch is going to build against Open Babel
3.x, so I started working on updating the openbabel package around the
time version 3.1.1 came out, which supposedly fixed some issues
related to packaging on linux. Based on your spec file, I was trying
to see which patches were obsolete, what else might be required to get
it to build with as many features as possible and then test the
"abandonware" that depends on it. Unfortunately (fortunately?), the
local lockdown was lifted and I was among the people authorized back
in the lab and I got swamped with work, so I didn't get very far. I
got the base stuff building at some point, but I had trouble with some
runtime dependencies. In the meantime, there's been the CMake change
and I don't know if what I got building still does.
I am currently on vacation until the last week of August and away from
my systems, so I can't test things, or comment on the issues I
encountered. That being said, I think that of the packagers involved,
I am the least qualified to take up openbabel and I haven't touched
RHEL or CentOS in years, so I have no idea what's going on there and
what's required to maintain the EPEL branches. I'd be happy to
co-maintain the Fedora ones and help out as much as I can. Given the
time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, do you think you could
hold on to the package a little longer (e.g. until the beginning of
September), so that people who are interested might get the chance to
get our act together?

Thank you for everything you've done so far,
