Topics:

  • stahnma> I have been working on a something that spits out requires/provides/filelisting etc for each rpm . I am actually surprised repoview doesn't have something like that
  • stuff will be hosted on fedorapeople
  • No ETA; stahnma> "I was hoping to have it done today, but that didn't happen ; maybe next coupel weeks. Holidays screw up schedules "
  • KojiAndBodhiForEpel
  • mmcgrath> the wheels are in motion to try to get funding for an intern but nothing concrete yet.
  • RHEL 5.1 (and 4.6) for the builders
  • thats done now, right?
  • how to do it next time still under discussion
  • nirik> | another issue related here: updates for builders? would it be hard to get them to pull updates into the buildroot ?
  • mmcgrath> | If we decide thats what we want to do we'll also have to figure out a way to do it. Right now going from RHEL5 -> 5.1 involved me downloading the DVD's, copying RPM's over and running createrepo.
  • more on the list
  • nirik> | I updated the page... if everyone could look and correct/add/modify, feel free.
  • Free discussion
