With the koji upgrade on the weekend support was deployed for external repos. this enables building of EPEL in koji. I have set up some tags and targets for doing EPEL scratch builds. right now you can scratch build to dist-5E-epel and dist-4E-epel. there is an issue i need to work around with EL-4 the old hack we used to provide a kernel to ppc doesnt work. I am working on a solution to that. To move building to koji we need to get bodhi setup and redo the release engineering process to closely match that of Fedora. What this means is that you will need to file a ticket with releng to have a package added to the buildroot if you need to build against it. it also means that things can hit stable sooner. Ideally id like to make the change quickly and transparently. Right now im aiming to do it on a saturday in march. it will mean that we take plague downa nd disable builds in koji. we need to import epel into koji at that point in time. once everthing is imported and tagged, building can be enabled. All developers at that point in time will need to update there common checkouts to be able to build. This email is intended to start discussion on the migration and allow people to bring up any concerns that they have. Dennis
