Backuppc-updates on CentOS
 
Hi all,

I installed BackupPC on one of my Centos 5.4-machines following the wiki at
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/BackupPC#head-725ed151d366bcf182cea92f765c373900cfc9dc,
where BackupPC is installed from the c5-testing repo.

root@mach012 ~/ [0]# rpm -qa backuppc
backuppc-3.1.0-1.el5.centos
root@mach012 ~/ [0]#

Seeing how there's been some updates to BackupPC in the near past, I thought
I'd run a yum update to get the updated package. That didn't work. So I
searched pbone.net for a BackupPC package on CentOS5 but didn't find any.
Doing the same search for RHEL5 gave me two packages (one for i386 and one for
x86_64); v3.1.0-5.
Looking more closely I saw that the RHEL5-packages were from epel, a repo one
maybe shouldn't choose as a primary repo for ones CentOS-systems if you can
help it. At least that's the impression I got from the various posts to this
list.

I thought all packages available from the prominent American upstream provider
got a treatment from the CentOS crew? Am I wrong or am I missing something
really basic, or some part of the CentOS philosophy here? Or isn't BackupPC a
package worthy of being CentOSified? 8-)

Thanks.

Not from Red Hat.

Red Hat doesn't provide BackupPC packages.

No, from epel.

So anything (more or less) that RH provides, we also get for CentOS while
any extra fluff like BackupPC for CentOS, is 3rd party. Did I get that
correct?
