This is essentially a rehash of my post yesterday to the elrepo list. I
think it might be more appropriate here.
For some time I have been building and running MythTV rpms to run under
Scientific Linux, currently version 7.9. This has required some hoop
jumping (just a little of it by me) as MythTV has evolved. No doubt I
will have to abandon the builds fairly soon, but I would prefer not to
do so immediately.
Yesterday the MythTV project reset its minimum version of taglib to
1.11.1, and a bunch of updates depending on that has just been committed.
rpms for taglib 1.11+ (and taglib-devel) are available for CentOS 8 and
several other distributions, but the 'current' version in SL7 et al is
1.8-8.20130218git. This is in the core repos, and I understand that
other repos cannot provide updates for such packages.
I have not yet tried a personal rebuild of the taglib packages from el8,
but is there any possibility that the taglib and taglib-devel in core
el7 might be updated?
RHEL7 (the core el7 as you say) entered it's maintenance phase with
RHEL 7.9 last year.
This means no new features, and no updates that are not security
and/or major bugs.
Just to be sure, I double checked if there was anything that looked
like there was work on a new libtag, and the answer is the same, nope.
I know it's not the news you wanted, but it's the news that is.
