Summary

  • 00:02 -- repotags/interaction with 3rd party repos -- owner: all
  • we wait for more discussion on the list (in particular for Fernando Lopez-Lezcano before we decide how to move on)
  • knurd also want to discuss cooperation with CentOS/z00dax a bit, which might have impact to this, too
  • 00:04 -- vacant seat in the steering committee
  • knurd mailed those five people thimm proposed; four answered; they gave a "no" or a "only if you don't find somebody else"

kind of answers; we wait another week and evaluate; maybe z00dax could join the Steering Committee (even without being a contributor for EPEL, as he can't sign the CLA)

  • 00:06 -- finish the wiki docs and remove the warnings


  • mether and quaid did some cleanups; quaid will do some more over the next few days; the plan is to remove the those "not official yet" warning by next weeks meeting, but the EPEL repo itself stays unannounced


  • some discussion about bodhi with lmacken under this topic; see full log for details
  • 00:14 -- Free discussion around EPEL


  • 00:15 nirik asked for comments regarding Xfce in EPEL, as Xfce will soon get into CentOS Extras, too; (see full log for details); knurd mentions that we should have it in EPEL, even if CentOS Extras has it, but we should try to find a way of cooperation so bugfixes find their way into CentOS Extras, EPEL and Fedora


  • 00:20 nirik> "oh, how about mock configs?" dgilmore will make sure they work


  • 00:25 smooge> "Will we be answering who the EPEL customers are thought to be to distinguish it from other customer bases?"; we continue on the list, but we maybe should write something up and put it in the wiki
  • 00:26 some discussions about RHEL subscriptions for testing; quiad "I haven't gotten too far with that ... still looking for the right person"; lots of people say that CentOS should be god enough for testing normally; but having some testboxes with RHEL around might be helpful
