Re: Unstable EPEL? (frequent package updates)

Well put, Paul.  Packages that mostly run standalone are appropriate
candidates for a rebase (like freehoo and firefox), but those that serve
as libraries or building blocks for other components should try to stay
as stable as possible from an ABI/API perspective.

I would like to add the distinction between "server" and "desktop" software.
While both categories are not always disjoint, it this the distinction is useful
nevertheless: Some things like Firefox, OpenOffice etc. can be updated more
often than something like Exim, Apache, ...

This is a bit like Red Hat does it these days.
