Re: Relationship to existing 3rd party repos/CentOS/SL?



For some reason I only got this mail today, so sorry for the late
reply.

No, I won't, because I don't think that the FPC is the political organ
to make the decision to play nice or not, that's either EPEL's or any
higher organ's decision, and most of the FPC thinks likewise, and
doesn't want to get the old maid passed along. The FPC can help in
telling you *how* to do it, or may tell you not to do it due to
technical reasons.

FWIW the FPC would look quite inclined to simply allow a disttag of
.el5.epel or similar, but that's a moot point now.
