Re: resolution for python-imaging in EPEL

The client packages are going to become available to all server

as it is a major repull of data.

For python-imaging my proposal is to move it to the core server.

Did you open a ticket about this package with RH support?

whether or not 5Server customers can get access to python-imaging
through RHN.
I don't think this is true. I have RHEL-5Server (academic)
entitlement, and I don't see "Client" listed anywhere in my list of
available software channels. I only see:

# RHEL Virtualization (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
# RHEL Supplementary (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
# RHEL Hardware Certification (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
# RHEL FasTrack (v. 5 for 32-bit x86)
# Red Hat Network Tools for RHEL Server (v.5 32-bit x86)

And "python-imaging" is definitely not available to me:

root bakserv:[~]# yum list python-imaging
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up repositories
rhel-i386-server-5        100% |=========================| 1.4 kB    00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files

The situation may be different for those who paid full enterprise
price for RHEL entitlements, but that doesn't change the fact that
unless EPEL provides "client" packages, I'll be left with broken
repositories. I will note, that it makes that much harder for me to
justify paying money to RH if I can have a better service using


epel-devel-list mailing list
epel-devel-list redhat com
Question: was the fact that python-imaging got introduced to RHELClient and not Server a conscious determination or
was it a mistake?
if it was a conscious determination, what are the policies that dictate when and how this occurs? and where can they be found?
