[Mono-dev] Buggered yum repo

Right now, when I follow the instructions to install mono
rpm --import "http://keyserver.ubuntu.com/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF"
yum-config-manager --add-repo http://download.mono-project.com/repo/centos/
rpm -ivh epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm
On a RHEL 6.7 x86_64 box, fully updated, with EPEL repo installed, and then I run (as root)
yum -y install mono-complete
I get a bunch of errors, including
Error: Package: mono-devel-188.8.131.52-0.xamarin.1.x86_64 (download.mono-project.com_repo_centos_)
So I double-checked that my system is fully updated, and confirmed that I have merely glibc_2.12.
So then I thought, maybe you guys support on Centos but not RHEL? And I looked at what's available in Centos ... Centos only goes up to 2.12.
So I have to conclude there's something buggered in your yum repo. Requiring a version of glibc later than what the OS provides.
This sort of thing happens often enough, that in general I don't use the mono repositories (because then I get stuck in positions like I am now, where installing mono is blocking productivity). I have to remove the mono repository, and rely on version 2.10 provided by epel. I wish you could improve the testing of this release process.
