Re: Zenoss Core

It helps. It sounds like the best place for us to be is in the "Fedora package sets". But based on what Warren said it seems like we are not compatible because we use our own python. The compat-python24 is a livna RPM and the livna repository is not upstream of RHEL is it?

I wanted to join this list to get a better idea for where we can
park our OSS "Zenoss Core" product such that it is included in
subsequent Fedora releases, is considered for inclusion in upcoming
RHEL releases, and is possibly also included in RHX (alongside our
commercial enterprise product).  I'm very new to the
EPEL/Livna/Fedora repository landscape, but I'm very familiar with
Linux, distros, yum, up2date, and all the other infrastructure.  I'm
asking for a bit of help in understanding what repositories and
processes feed distributions and releases so that I can understand
where we should try to park our OSS "Zenoss Core" product.

Any insight (wikis/FAQs/HOWTOs) that anyone can provide would be
happily accepted! :)

I can give a bit of overview.

RHEL is almost directly cut from Fedora package sets.  There are a few
things added that aren't in Fedora, and many things removed, but
getting something into a RHEL release has a much higher chance if it's
in Fedora already.

EPEL is something newly created, which is an addon repository for RHEL
brought to you by the Fedora community.  It's a place where packages
can be brought up to the RHEL standard and used by RHEL customers.  If
the demand is sufficient enough, there is potential to "promote" the
package out of EPEL and into RHEL proper.  However that comes with the
cost that a Red Hat employee would have to maintain the package, and
you would lose the ability to directly touch said package.

Does that help?
