This package obsoletes grib_api causing following packages to break:

grib_api-static-1.12.3-5.el7.x86_64 (this is missing from obsoletes?)
python-grib_api-1.12.3-5.el7.x86_64 (this is also missing from obsoletes?)

Bodhi is disabling automatic push to stable due to negative karma. The maintainer may push manually if they determine that the issue is not severe.

This needs to be coordinated with other packages if absolutely required, but otherwise I this just is against EPEL policy.

Thanks for your comment.

Regarding your question "is this required?" I would say yes. grib_api will be end-of-life at the end of the year. This package depends on its table definitions, and if they are no longer updated, users will (slowly) loose the ability to use recent data. So doing nothing seems wrong to me.

The timing when to do this change can be debated of course. I sure will not push the package unless you and the other packagers affected are happy. (are there others? Actually I have no idea how to do a repoquery for epel packages on my fedora system to find out).

Since eccodes provides a compatibility library for grib_api the problem seems only gdl? So please take a look at the pull request for gdl that I did on fedora. Is that something that could be applied to epel as well?

This update has reached 14 days in testing and can be pushed to stable now if the maintainer wishes
