EPEL report week 27, 2007



http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Reports/Week27

= Weekly EPEL Summary =

Week 27/2007

== Most important happenings ==

 * Policy for "Branching for EPEL if Fedora maintainer does not react"
was approved

 * target date for for official EPEL announcement: July 19; we need to
fix all broken deps beforehand (and make sure any new ones hit the repo)

== EPEL SIG Meeting ==

=== Attending ===

>From the Steering Committee:

 * dgilmore (DennisGilmore)
 * Jeff_S (Jeff Sheltren)
 * knurd (ThorstenLeemhuis)
 * mmcgrath (MikeMcGrath)
 * nirik (KevinFenzi)
 * quiad (KarstenWade)
 * stahnma (MichaelStahnke)

=== Summary ===

 * EPEL Meeting – broken deps – nirik:

  * Jeff_S will be responsible for this topic; nirik will try to help

  * we need to poke people; they likely don't even know that there are
broken dep

  * running a repoclosure before push would be ideal, but not easy; we
should get that with bodhi sooner or later, so we don't look deeper into
this issue

 * spam o magic script (broken deps)  – mmcgrath

  * mmcgrath is looking at it; he committed to have it ready by the next
meeting

 * Move epel dirs on servers down below stable – knurd

  * last week decided, this week reverted.

 * Branch for EPEL if Fedora maintainer does not react – knurd, _blah_

  *

got approved, knurd added it to the wiki. We likely need to adjust a
small detail; see
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-devel-list/2007-July/msg00332.html

 * signers group – dgilmore

  * dgilmore and mmcgrath can push and sign; that is considered enough
for now

 * finish the wiki docs and remove the warnings by end of may – quaid

  * round about ready; quaid has some changes pending, but nothing major

  * warning on the top EPEL-page in the wiki will get removed shortly
before announcement

 * EPEL announcement -- quaid

  * early announce draft to epel-devel-l  soon; shortly after that early
announce to f-maintainers ; followed by first draft of real announcement
to e-d-l ; finally announce on Jul 19

 * RHX and EPEL – quaid

  * seems some people still don't really know that RHX actually is

  * general agreement to "we should try to work it so that Free and open
source software in RHX is available in EPEL with community support";
quaid> "I doubt we'll have any problem with that idea . I think the RHX
folks feel the same; they have no need to duplicate what we do for no
reason, and lose the gain of the community . It's going to be a few
weeks until we can get a formal set of guidelines between the two groups
. Mainly it's about the messaging, making sure that it's easy to know
the difference between a package from EPEL and one from RHX . I made the
point that ISVs can control that best if the ... actually own the
package in Fedora :) "
