Re: Release and update procedure for EPEL

Wasn't Red Hat introducing something along the lines of a LAMP stack
that rolls on top of RHEL?  LIke it would actually have PHP5/MySQL
5(or maybe 4.1) on top of RHEL 4.  It was a separate subscription I
thought, but a valid idea.  The latest software for what is needed,
and stable known-good software for the rest.

I thought something like that was talked about at the RH summit last year.

I do think that a rolling release on top of a no API/ABI breakage
release would be very difficult to do, and tend to agree that
targetting minor releases for updates probably makes the most sense
for users and developers.

I agree with the "fixed set, with bugfixes and security updates only", too.

But also with this:

But I'd say we should leave this out for now until EPEL lift of, and
find a a solution for this later.
