Summary0000958: Only llvm-14.0.6 available besides older version 5,6 and 7
DescriptionWe have some applications compiled with llvm-13. Package llvm-13.0.1 was available in the appstream module llvm-toolset, but recently this has been updated to llvm-14.0.6

If we try to install our applications, it will fail because it cannot find llvm-13.0.1 anymore

Additional InformationWhy aren't the older llvm versions not added to the appstream module for compatibility (like the old versions llvm5.0, llvm6.0 and llvm7.0), like Red Hat 8 does in its appstream llvm-toolset module?

Red Hat has a CDN for their releases. This means that everything stays in their CDN (and thus, their repositories) even though a package may be deprecated, obsoleted, replaced, upgraded. I don't know a reason for this.

With that being said, we have a policy on how our versions operate.

During a releases life (which is 6 months), we try to keep older versions of packages around in case a rollback is required. This is not the case when a new minor release comes out (in this case, 8.7).

Our suggestion is that you reach out to the vendor of the software to rebuild it to be compatible with the latest version of LLVM. If you strictly require an older LLVM, we are unable to provide it by normal means. You will need to use the vault: -- Note that this is not supported and these versions are considered out of date. They will not be updated or maintained.
