Can some provenpackager bump openvpn in EL-5
 
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi,
I have this bz open for some time now, with no response.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=544944

Can some one with proven packager access bump the EL-5 version to the
latest one in devel.

Thanks.

Even though any proven packager could do the change, that bug does not
fall in the items listed in the proven packager policy [1]. You haven't
listed any problems with the current package, you're just requesting a
version upgrade.

Version upgrades should be performed by the package maintainer. This
especially holds in EPEL, which should be a slowly moving distribution.

The Changelog file upstream shows a lot of bugs have been fixed and it
would be nice to have it fixed in EPEL too.

In this case the bz is around 2.5 weeks old, with absolutely no response.
What is the policy to get the package updated in this case?

OK, that's starting to sound better.

The version of openvpn in EPEL is an upstream rc version.

Actually, FYI, I'm a provenpackager and have recently contacted the
openvpn maintainer. There are quite a few open bugs, including yours,
and I requested his approval to take a look at the open bugs and make
changes, updates, etc, and he gave me the green light. I'll try to get
to this this week.


Essentially, he's not been doing much with Fedora lately due to Real
Life intervening, which I can certainly understand.

An update for F-12 is on it's way to testing. I'm using it now with no
issues, but I can't test the boot bug, as the machine acting as my
openvpn server isn't using NetworkManager. That said, it should work.
Please test and let me know if changes need to be made.
