Weekly EPEL Summary

Week 36/2007

Most important happenings

  • EPEL SIG tried alternative meeting time (23:00 UTC). The participation was nearly identical to meetings taking place at the old time. More discussion will likely occur on how to engage more EPEL involvement.
  • Stahnma is still investigating the best way to deal with package information to ensure that EPEL is not stepping on packages from RHEL/RHN. Thus far a list of channels with package information is available at stahnma.fedorapeople.org/rhn.
  • Nirik is working on setting up the security groups for EPEL so updates can match be CVEs etc.
  • Nirik will send out information to the list on the best way to notify EPEL if a package needs to be pulled because it conflicts with RHEL/RHN content.
