The official EPEL policy with regards to conflicts is here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#Does_EPEL_replace_packages_provided_within_Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux_or_layered_products.3F So technically, we aren't against policy here... it is a confusing situation that will require careful config to get the "correct" ansible for RHEL users though. _______________________________________________ devel mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to devel-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org
