 * Free discussion around EPEL


  * nirik> | I'd like to throw out a plea for a reviewer for my clamav for epel package... https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=396171

  nirik> | I'd like to get clamav in, but I fear people are afraid because it's not the same as the fedora package. Or that it is and they would have to review that...


  * nirik> | I also have been working on getting munin in... cleaned up the fedora package and am working on the requirements for epel.
