 * [:MichaelStahnke:stahnma] 

Topics:

 * RHEL MetaData | stahnma | http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/RhelMetaData 

  * 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

 * update http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/GuidelinesAndPolicies 

  * nirik> | I updated the page... if everyone could look and correct/add/modify, feel free. 

 * Free discussion

  * anything planned on EPEL at FUDcon?  Maybe a EPEL meeting at fudcon... perhaps a 'Fedora maintainers intro to EPEL' ? 

  * stahnma> | also, it's great to see so many new packages in EPEL lately 

  * nirik> | I am still working on getting munin in... need some more perl deps. Will probibly start on Xfce over the holidays too.
