  * mmcgrath> | nothing over the holidays.  We're hopeful but nothing concrete yet. 



 * Free discussion around EPEL



  * tibbs mentioned there was a review for an EPEL-only package (tetex-lineno, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=426929  );The only real issue with that review is what to do with the devel branch. 



   * it was agreed on that a dead.package-file should in the devel branch (that's what was done) is the best approach



  * fudcon? 



   * mmcgrath, nirik and quiad will be there



   * nirik> | well, the one thing I can think of would be to do a 'what is epel and why I should branch my packages for it' type session...
