Hi all,

It seems that the package was retired on 2019-02-11[1].

I filed a bug[2] asking if it would be possible to build it using the patrodyne fork[3].
This fork contains patches in order to make Pound support OpenSSL v1.1.0 and WebSocket correctly.

As so far I didn't receive any answer, I decided to send this message.

I forked the package in src.fedoraproject.org, updated the spec file[4] and created a copr[5] mirror. I also built it against EPEL 8 playground[6].

I performed some tests and it all seems to be working well.

Do you think we could have this or any other build of this fork of Pound in EPEL 8?

I am in the packager group, and I'd be happy to help to maintain this package.
Any other input anyone may have is very welcome.
