Weekly EPEL Summary

Week 09/2008 2008-02-24 -> 2008-03-01

Most important happenings

  • Held meeting at scheduled time. However, forgot to send out reminders so attendance was sparse.

Mailing list

Noteworthy discussions

  • Zenoss rpms and how to get them into EPEL. Upstream wants to work with us.. problems are that it only works on EPEL and not Fedora proper. Need to work through FESCO on how to handle this.
  • Call for EPEL Logo. Not much beyond smooge on this. Offline discussions say that using 'hats' in logos gets the trademark police involved..

Thanks for everyone.. I will correct missing accounts later.

Summary:

  • Status of projects was gone over.
  • Thorsten went over that the push was complicated by various broken dependancies.
  • Mike Mcgrath installed and ran Michael Schwendt's dependancy script. Results were sent to mailling list.
  • We learned the pain of RHEL channels when running dependancy scripts (various packages are in client and not server, etc etc).
  • Next meeting we will go over moving the meeting and going over the empty board placement (Xavier's nomination to be voted on).
  • Discussed pros and cons of CentOS versus RHEL for build systems.
  • Some koji work may be done on getting RHEL inside of a 'hidden' tree.
  • EL-6 will be coming out someday. How will EPEL handle it? Set up a build system using beta? etc?
