Weekly EPEL Summary

Week 28/2007

Most important happenings

  • target date for for official EPEL announcement was set back by one week onto July the 26th. We need more time to fix all broken deps beforehand (and make sure any new ones hit the repo). Volunteers that help with that would be greatly appreciated.
  • discussions on the mailing list how to handle python-imaging -- it's in EL5Client, but not in EL5Server; thus if we don't ship it users will run into broken deps on EL5Server

EPEL SIG Meeting

Summary

  • broken deps/spam-o-magic – Jeff_S/mmcgrath


  • not much progress
  • mmcgrath still fighting with the script (the latest version seems to depend on koji) he'll talk to mschwendt to find one for EPEL/get help


  • EPEL announcement – quiad


  • we push the estimated announce-date back by one week to 20070726 -- we need more time to fix deps (aka: "release early, but only when it's not broken")
  • push new packages to testing after EPEL annoucement – dgilmore


  • we discussed how to handle new and updated packages in the near future. We proceed as planed earlier: push everything to testing/ (which will become stable with the next quarterly update) and hand-move important updates over to stable; knurd and nirik are willing to help with that job, as that's a manual process. We need a wiki page and/or a e-mail alias for that. The problem will be solved with switching to bodhi in the long term


  • no new meeting time wound yet; looks a bit like everyone who edited the page likes the current time


  • ExcludeArch TrackerBugs for EPEL – notting/knurd


  • some discussions, no agreement; discuss issue on the list again
  • free discussions
  • some derogatory comments about EPEL on another mailing list and some discussions how to improve our docs to avoid make clear what EPEL wants/what EPEL is about
