Weekly EPEL Summary

Week 45/2007

Most important happenings

  • nothing earthshaking

Mailing list

Noteworthy discussions

  • EPEL builders are still RHEL 5.0; moving to RHEL 5.1 now on bears the risk that we break users of CentOS 5.0; no real outcome from the discussion yet; more discussion needed
  • lots of deps of bugzilla are not yet in EPEL (lots of them: perl); lot's of packages that a 3rd party repo would need to compile xine-lib-extras-nonfree, mplayer and similar stuff are still missing as well; help needed;

Meeting

Next Meeting

20071107 at 18:00 UTC in #fedora-meeting.

Please note that it's 18:00 UTC now again after the DST switch, so the effective meeting time should stay the same for everyone!

Summary

  • nirik> | I think the last move went pretty well...

do we want to schedule them for specific times?


  • mmcgrath> | nirik: I'd schedule a time then see if the list wants us to change it. It could be a while before the next move.

although, since its just you and me, perhaps the list would be better, or just wait till the next meeting to talk about it.


  • nirik> | yeah, I would be happy with once a month or something, then the question is how long something needs to be in testing.


  • nirik> | I can try and work on it I guess...

plan on perhaps next monday? let the f8 release suck up all the bw, etc.


  • Clamav
  • nirik is working on it
  • why don't the broken dep reports go to the list?


  • mmcgrath> | A) The script we use, for some reason, can take a long time to run and B) no one's done the work.


  • mmcgrath posted to the list asking people to help so it gets posted to the list


  • mmcgrath> | I say, Add them to the wish list and get to contacting each packager one by one until everything is in.


  • nirik> | I think contacting maintainers is the best way... and if they don't answer branching, etc.
