Summary

  • EPEL Meeting|push to stable easily -- knurd


  • knurd talked to mschwendt about it but didn't find time for more yet; more work underway

(which is in progress already when this report got written)


  • we'll make nirik a pusher as well to spread the burden of the work



  • stahnma suggested to do alternating meetings (and not in the middle of the work-day), like some other Fedora groups. Another old idea mentioned earlier was to do bi-weekly meetings (maybe a mix of both?). Discuss further on the list.


  • Metadata for all Packages available to contributors. -- stahnma


  • The thread that was brought up about this is very interesting; basically, the EPEL community has no exact list of packages in RHEL/RHN proper; and even if we get a list of packages, we still need metadata; to see if we're conflicting with RH packages


  • some discussion around this; see log for full details; But its a complicated topic, so continue on the list


  • the new License tags and EPEL


  • nirik will consult spot how to handle the tags for EPEL and post to the list about it


  • is anybody reading the weekly reports?


  • some people said they do. But its a boring job, so tell me if I'm wasing my time ;-)
