Request of MONO-2.4 in EPEL5



There are people around that would like to see some of your Fedora packages in Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux

(EPEL) [1]  -- I for example would like to see mono-2.4 in EPEL5 and mainly send you this mail on behalf of the EPEL team as you didn't yet let the team know via the Contributor Status [2]  page if you are planning to build some or all of your Fedora packages for EPEL.


Are you interested in maintaining your packages in EPEL? EPEL is similar to Fedora Extras -- just that EPEL is a add-on repo for RHEL and compatible spinoffs such as CentOS. EPEL uses the same CVS and the same build servers as Fedora and a lot of Fedora maintainers are EPEL maintainers as well; the main difference is just that packages in EPEL are updated more carefully and supported for a longer timeframe. See [3] and [4]  for details. In short: EPEL tries to ship a package once and update it to later versions only when there is a strong need to.


For branching your packages for EPEL follow the standard Fedora procedure[5]  -- instead of FC-6 or F-7 targets just use EL-4 or EL-5 as branch names. If you maintain several packages (> 2) you can also use a scripted branching method (all packages from a contributor) by using the scripted branch process[6] .


If you are not interested in EPEL please let the EPEL contributors know and update the information on [2]  to avoid further mails like this -- that just takes a minute or two and would be a great help for the EPEL team. Please note that EPEL maintainers that might want to see your package in EPEL will likely start to maintain the package in EPEL sooner or later and thus become co-maintainers [7]  of your packages for EPEL.


I have done a little work by patching your mono-2.4 spec to make it can be build under the RHEL5 environment. The attachment is the nosrc.rpm.


The EPEL team appreciate your help with EPEL.
