EPEL Weekly Report



= Weekly EPEL Summary =

Week 36/2007

== Most important happenings ==

    * EPEL SIG tried alternative meeting time (23:00 UTC).  The
participation was nearly identical to meetings taking place at the old
time.  More discussion will likely occur on how to engage more EPEL
involvement.

    * Stahnma is still investigating the best way to deal with package
information to ensure that EPEL is not stepping on packages from
RHEL/RHN.  Thus far a list of channels with package information is
available at stahnma.fedorapeople.org/rhn.

    * Nirik is working on setting up the security groups for EPEL so
updates can match be CVEs etc.

    * Nirik will send out information to the list on the best way to
notify EPEL if a package needs to be pulled because it conflicts with
RHEL/RHN content.

    * Some discussion with with CentOS developers.  CentOS developers
would like to have a bit more collaberation and ensure that if a
package requires updating for EPEL that CentOS be made aware of it
also.  (See https://www.redhat.com/archives/epel-devel-list/2007-September/msg00021.html
