Default Request: add kdiff3 to EPEL-6

It seems that kdiff3 is missing from RHEL 6.
Please add it to EPEL 6

You need to file this against epel, not rhel. Also, the package already
has a branch for epel 6 (but has not been built) and a package for epel
5. It builds in epel 6, see

yes.

i did file it against rhel because they included git in rhel and kdiff3 is
the default difftool for git.

including it in epel is fine with me too, but having it in rhel is better
i think.

? I guess this shows just again how much sense top-posting makes...

No, it is not. Without user configuration, git-difftool takes a guess
from a large list of possible tools, taking into account what is
available, whether you have a DISPLAY, what desktop you use and whether
your VISUAL/EDITOR setting shows that you like vim. On a system with
kdiff3 and without meld and opendiff (or within kde and without
opendiff) that results in kdiff3.

Well, you can get it in epel now/soon or in rhel 7. Having it in epel 6
may actually help getting it into rhel 7.

well, under 'normal' circumstances on my machine, under a gnome desktop,
with kdiff3 installed, both difftool and mergetool seem to open up kdiff3...

git gui also seems to have a preference for kdiff3

hey, if I'm wrong that's fine too. I'm just telling you what I'm seeing.

it is in epel 5 but not in rhel 6...
why would it go into rhel 7 when it is in epel 6?


and as I already said:
>> including it in epel is fine with me too


relax :-)

And on the assumption that you're a Red Hat paying customer, filing an
RFE for a package you'd like to see included in RHEL is fine, although
I personally suggest you use the customer portal so they know it's
coming from a customer...

Which is a vague translation of what the automated message has said


If you want it added to EPEL for v6, file a bug against the EPEL
package, it looks like the owner just hasn't had chance to rebuild for
RHEL6. There's a number of EPEL maintainers who are primarily CentOS
based, not RHEL based, and some of them aren't building packages yet
because they

a) can't use them
b) don't need them
c) can't test them
d) any/all of the above.
