  • Repo-layout
  • looks like Fedora will keep lmacken and mbonnet busy for a while; so we should might towards a solution to annouce epel, but use plague and the old extras push-scripts for the near future; or go without testing for nowdiscuss further on the list
  • some discussion if we want stable and rolling releases
  • Make sure the repo is in good shape
  • we maybe should run the dependency checker script regularly; mmcgrath will look into this
  • Announce EPEL officially


  • mmcgrath> so we're blocking on the wiki as well as the build stuff.

So thats the end of the big picture tasks really.


  • Vacant seat in the steering committee
  • will get discussed on the list
  • Free Discussion:
  • some discussion around RHX and if EPEL can package stuff that's part of it; see full log for details
