Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) is a volunteer-based community effort from the Fedora project to create a repository of high-quality add-on packages that complement the Fedora-based []Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux | Red Hat Enterprise Linux]] and its compatible spinoffs such as CentOS or Scientific Linux.


Getting Started with EPEL



EPEL for Contributors

Joining EPEL is as simple as being part of Fedora (e.g. be a part of the packager group in the account system) and having a love for Enterprise Linux. There is a template that can be used for maintaining EPEL packages as part of a job. More details in the FAQ entry on contributing.

Communicate with the EPEL SIG or other EPEL contributors via the EPEL developers mailing list and #epel on the Freenode IRC Network.
