Subject:[EPEL-devel] EPEL-ANNOUNCE Unintendedly removed EPEL packages
From:Till Maas (

when migrating away from PackageDB several EPEL packages were unintendedly retired. The packages still contained a dead.package file in dist-git but for some of them it was reported that they were unretired but it was missed to restore the dist-git content/remove the dead.package file. The issue is currently tracked at:

Unfortunately it is not clear (to me) how to unretire the packages at the moment. I hope we will be able to resolve this issue soon.

The following packages are possibly affected, however at this moment it is not clear whether all of these package were not meant to be retired or if the lists also includes packages that were meant to be retired but only received a dead.package file without being retired in pkgdb2:
