Since the end of october, this package (libmspack 0.7-0.1.alpha.el7) is no longer available from epel repository. And when we have launched a yum upgrade from our centos7 distribution, the package has been removed.

This package is also available in a previous version on centos base repository (0.5-0.5.alpha.el7). Is it plan to put this package available again on EPEL repository or it will be no longer available on epel ?

Thank you,

See Bugzilla 1493555. The policy is that when Centos and RHEL provides a packages, then epel will not provide the same package, not even a newer one.
