We had a 1 1/2 h meeting, but there were no conclusions as such, but
it was nice to meet all people and attach faces and voices to the
email addresses. And yes, people in real life are really nice.

Personally I tried to discuss the high-level cooperation/compatibility
willingness existing, but no matter how often I tried to pull into
this direction the discussion wouldn't follow. It was too much about
the R.I.P. repotags again.

You think so? After the repotag fiasco I went through a lot of pain to
strip them of, so the damage is done. Also the issue showed the real
weakness of repotags: It takes just one non-conforming repo to kill
them.

I really hope so, but adding repotags to epel will not help anymore in
this - it's too late, repotags are dead and the pain has been
inflicted, in fact for me the revival of repotags would imply the same
transition pain again.

We need much higher level manifests like for example
