If you look at the mongodb 2.6 in rawhide (f22) you will notice that
there is no libmongodb. All of that has been split off into a separate
package called mongo-cxx-driver.
What am I proposing for EPEL6 and EPEL7?
I propose we keep mongodb on EPEL6 at 2.4 for as long as possible. I
have just updated it to 2.4.12 (from 2.4.6).
I am also proposing that we move EPEL7 to mongodb 2.6.x now, instead of
later. That will give people a clean way to migrate from mongodb 2.4 to
2.6. They will just need to migrate from RHEL6 to RHEL7.
Any thoughts, complaints, problems?
If there aren't any, I'll let these take their normal 2 weeks in bohdi
and then move them into EPEL.
+1 - I think sticking with 2.4.x for as long as possible is likely the
best course of action given that users tend to expect a certain level
of stability from EPEL (for various definitions/contexts of the term).
