OpenStack in EPEL

All of the packages require python-sphinx. These all need at least this adjustment for EL6:

-BuildRequires:    python-sphinx
+%{?fedora:BuildRequires:    python-sphinx >= 1.0}
+%{?el6:BuildRequires:    python-sphinx10}

and to use sphinx-1.0-build instead of sphinx-build.

Packages in EPEL

  • openstack-swift

Packages needing to be added to EPEL
