Week 20/2007

== EPEL SIG Meeting ==

=== Attending ===

>From the Steering Committee:
 * dgilmore (DennisGilmore)
 * knurd (ThorstenLeemhuis)
 * mmcgrath (MikeMcGrath)
 * nirik (KevinFenzi)
 * quiad (KarstenWade)

Stahnma (MichaelStahnke) just missed the meeting.

Others that participated the meeting: Jeff_S, lmacken, smooge

=== Summary ===

 * 00:02 -- repotags/interaction with 3rd party repos -- owner: all

  * we wait for more discussion on the list (in particular for Fernando
Lopez-Lezcano before we decide how to move on)

  * knurd also want to discuss cooperation with CentOS/z00dax a bit,
which might have impact to this, too

 * 00:04 -- vacant seat in the steering committee

  * knurd mailed those five people thimm proposed; four answered; they
gave a "no" or a "only if you don't find somebody else"
 kind of answers; we wait another week and evaluate; maybe z00dax could
join the Steering Committee
 (even without being a contributor for EPEL, as he can't sign the CLA)

 * 00:06 -- finish the wiki docs and remove the warnings


  * mether and quaid did some cleanups; quaid will do some more over the
next few days; the plan is to remove the those "not official yet"
warning by next weeks meeting, but the EPEL repo itself stays unannounced


  * some discussion about bodhi with lmacken under this topic; see full
log for details

 * 00:14 -- Free discussion around EPEL


  * 00:15 nirik asked for comments regarding Xfce in EPEL, as Xfce will
soon get into CentOS Extras, too;  (see full log for details); knurd
mentions that we should have it in EPEL, even if CentOS Extras has it,
but we should try to find a way of cooperation so bugfixes find their
way into CentOS Extras, EPEL and Fedora


  * 00:20 nirik> "oh, how about mock configs?" dgilmore will make sure
they work


  * 00:25 smooge> "Will we be answering who the EPEL customers are
thought to be to distinguish it from other customer bases?"; we continue
on the list, but we maybe should write something up and put it in the wiki

  * 00:26 some discussions about RHEL subscriptions for testing; quiad
"I haven't gotten too far with that ... still looking for the right
person"; lots of people say that CentOS should be god enough for testing
normally; but having some testboxes with RHEL around might be helpful
