Summary

  • EPEL Meeting – broken deps – nirik:
  • Jeff_S will be responsible for this topic; nirik will try to help
  • we need to poke people; they likely don't even know that there are broken dep
  • running a repoclosure before push would be ideal, but not easy; we should get that with bodhi sooner or later, so we don't look deeper into this issue
  • spam o magic script (broken deps) – mmcgrath


  • mmcgrath is looking at it; he committed to have it ready by the next meeting
  • Move epel dirs on servers down below stable – knurd


  • last week decided, this week reverted.
  • Branch for EPEL if Fedora maintainer does not react – knurd, _blah_


  • signers group – dgilmore
  • dgilmore and mmcgrath can push and sign; that is considered enough for now


  • finish the wiki docs and remove the warnings by end of may – quaid


  • round about ready; quaid has some changes pending, but nothing major
  • warning on the top EPEL-page in the wiki will get removed shortly before announcement
  • EPEL announcement -- quaid
  • early announce draft to epel-devel-l

soon; shortly after that early announce to f-maintainers

followed by first draft of real announcement to e-d-l
finally announce on Jul 19


  • RHX and EPEL – quaid


  • seems some people still don't really know that RHX actually is
  • general agreement to "we should try to work it so that Free and open source software in RHX is available in EPEL with community support"; quaid> "I doubt we'll have any problem with that idea

. I think the RHX folks feel the same; they have no need to duplicate what we do for no reason, and lose the gain of the community . It's going to be a few weeks until we can get a formal set of guidelines between the two groups . Mainly it's about the messaging, making sure that it's easy to know the difference between a package from EPEL and one from RHX . I made the point that ISVs can control that best if the ... actually own the package in Fedora :) "
