  • no exact numbers, but there are likely about 2500 - 3000 packages (counting SRPMS) in Fedora which are not in EPEL
  • smooge> | I think once we are pushing things regularly and getting more packages.. it would be a good idea to start recruuitiong more mirrors
  • more mirrors can't hurt; asking on that closed mirror list might be the best start to get more mirrors
