Bug Description

I noticed that IUS packages PECL memcache. The PECL memcached extension is increasingly favored these days for various reasons, and a good package would make it easier to install. It does, however, require libmemcached. Remi's repository has good libmemcached and PECL memcached packages, if you're looking for a basis.

Thank you for the request. It shouldn't be difficult to add this package in the near future.

This package requires libmemcached which is not in EPEL 5 currently (making it a candidate for EPEL rather than IUS). I've contacted the maintainer for libmemcached in Fedora (remi) who provided the following feedback as to why it is not currently in EPEL:

"This library is under very active development (about 1 version every 2 months) and have a lot of ABI breaks between each version. So, not really stable enough for EPEL policy."

I'm going to sit on this one for a bit. If it comes down to it, we can add the dep to IUS until it is stable enough for EPEL, however the same ABI breakage would be an issue that we need to consider before adding it.

What about now? libmemcached is included in EPEL5.

It does seem php-pecl-memcached and libmemcached are now available through EPEL:


I will review the php-pecl-memcached SPEC and see what will be needed from IUS to add this
as a module for php53u

I have created a successful build for php53u-pecl-memcached-1.0.0-2.ius and tagged it as testing-candidate,
this build will be synced to the testing repo tonight (it could take up to 24 hours for the mirrorlist to sync from this).

Once this package has been synced would you mind testing and providing feedback.

You can also install from the testing repo directly with the following command:

   yum install php53u-pecl-memcached --enablerepo=ius-testing
