Relationship to existing 3rd party repos/CentOS/SL?


the voting/decision on repotags was labeled as being 99% a political
one, and no one objected against that old statement. Does the outcome
of EPEL not carrying repotags mean that there is no interest in
cooperation with 3rd party repos?

I'm not after answers on pseudo-technical details, so consider the
above question as rhetorical, instead let me rephrase completely
outside the scope of repotags:

What is EPEL's intended relation to the existing third party repos?

 * Will it jump in the game ignoring that 3rd party repos exist and
   let Darwinism prevail?
 * Will it try to work together with these repos? If yes, in what
   concrete way?
 * Does EPEL consider itself at the same level as these repos, or does
   it place itself higher, pushing any compatibility issues to the
   workload of these repos?

The Fedora/3rd party rift created several years ago is still in the
healing process, I think everyone agrees in retrospect that it wasn't
neccessary and we'd be better off not to allow it to happen in the
first place.

But I see the danger of this history pattern to repeat itself, and
standing with one feet in a 3rd party repo and another in EPEL I'm in
conflict with myself right now, so I'd like us to clarify this.
