Revision as of 00:32, 19 January 2011

The Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) project is happy to
announce the release of EPEL 6 today!

EPEL 6 is a collection of add-on packages available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 and other compatible systems, maintained by
the community under the umbrella of the Fedora Project.  EPEL 6 is
designed to supplement RHEL 6 by providing additional functionality
and does not replace any RHEL 6 packages.  As a community project,
EPEL 6 is maintained and supported by volunteers via Bugzilla and
mailing lists.  EPEL 6 is not commercially supported by Red Hat, Inc.

Included are over 2500 source packages that build into over 5600
binary packages.  We are always seeking volunteers eager and willing
to help maintain new packages.  See below to join us!

* rt3 - The Request Tracker Bug and Ticket tracking system, as well as
