Changed

These packages were changed from the original vendors packages in Scientific Linux 6.3

Packages Changed by Scientific Linux

Packages modified by Scientific Linux should contain sl within their release string.

Packages Changed for building reasons

Some packages would not build in our build environment. We changed these packages in order for them, or other packages, to build. The changes are minimal and are associated with a bug filed upstream to hopefully reduce this list over time. The final packages have been compared to freely available ones and are not significantly different.
To distinguish these packages we typically put 0.sl6 at the end of the release number.
epydoc
To fix a build error with python-nss a patch was added (bz#578920)

This change went into effect with SL 6.0 and was fixed by upstream in 6.1
For some features texlive-dvips and texlive-latex are required, but not listed in the SPEC file. (bz#522249)
This change went into effect with SL 6.0 and continues in this release.

opal
opal needed a bug fix patch in order for ekiga to build. The opal-3.6.6-buildopts.patch was missing one line for it to work properly. (bz#661769)
This change went into effect with SL 6.0 and continues in this release.
pilot-link

When "autoreconf -is" is called this causes libtool to run from /usr/bin/libtool which is version 2.2.6b but the source ships its own libtool in pilot-link-0.12.4/libtool which is version 2.2.6 and called from the make files. This version mix does not work. (bz#663632)
This change went into effect with SL 6.0 and continues in this release.
rome
TUV 6 provides jdom-1.1.1 and not jdom-1.0 so we changed it to 1.1.1 (bz#665537)
This change went into effect with SL 6.0 and continues in this release.
