Subject: How to prevent accidental EPEL updates of RHEL-core packages?

Hi all,

this update shouldn't have been pushed b/c python-sphinx is in core RHEL:
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-EPEL-2011-5268/python-sphinx-1.0.8-1.el6

Is there any check in place to prevent updates breaking the rule
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/GuidelinesAndPolicies#Policy_for_Conflicting_Packa ges
?

In the first place, I guess python-sphinx shouldn't have el6 branch at all.

Cheers,
Alan

Wonder what the challenges are... it should be mostly just a case of a
white/black list matching on ${name}. We already do this against
CentOS/EPEL for both src.rpm content and binary content in i386/x86_64 (
and hopefully powerpc soon )

That doesn't help with Koji build roots which were carrying this wrong
Sphinx update and enabled few builds to succeed which should've failed
and are FTBFS now
e.g. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=802153#c10

Cheers,
Alan

It likely will be easier with 6. On 5 it was unclear what of the many
channels to check against.

On 6 it's more clear what things we use and could check against.

If someone wants to write up such a script, or if CentOS folks are
willing to provide their script I could see about getting it
running here.
