In this case, the version of Nagios in the RHEL repo is a version 2 release and that's almost prehistoric and uses a different syntax for its config files than the far more widely used V3. In EPEL I think we have V3.0.6 and even that's getting pretty old as v3.2.0 is in rpmforge and on the Nagios web site.On Mon, 2010-01-11 at 17:03 -0600, Michael Stahnke wrote:EPEL was designed to pair with RHEL. EPEL + RHEL should roughly match the Fedora package collection. If it's RHEL + EPEL + Extra Channel1 + Extra Channel2, ..... that's a difficult sell. Some people see value in support/subscription on layered products, and some do not.So how about a policy where EPEL keeps the version the same as the one in ExtraChannel but with a lower release number? This way people not subscribing to ExtraChannel will get the software and people who do subscribe to the channel will get the version from Red Hat.
Be much easier if RH orphaned the V2 release in that repo.
