Description jsc 2011-11-15 12:51:07 UTC
the used epm is under GPL and we can't host the sources anymore. It is used during the build process only and we will make it a prerequisite.

This issue cover the removal of the epm sources
Comment 1 jsc 2011-11-25 10:11:39 UTC

epm is now handled similar to dmake and can be seen as a prerequisite.

1. epm is searched on the path and has to be a patched version of epm 3.7

2. --with-epm=<path_to_epm> where the path has to point to a patched version of epm 3.7

3. --with-epm-url=<url_to_epm-3.7-sources> for example ""
The original source package is downloaded and build if explicitly triggered by using this configure switch. "configure --help" will provide the link to the original source.

4. --disable-epm, disables epm and on platforms where epm is required no packages are build.

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
