Re: EPEL Packages in need of building for EL-6

Dear Package owner,

On Monday June 28th at the EPEL meeting on IRC we agreed to an initial
target date of August 15th for having all packages built for EL-6.

Below is a summary of EPEL packages for Enterprise Linux 6 that you own
which have not yet been built.

Owner: sixy
mrepo
netsniff-ng

mrepo I very recently took ownership of, and am actively working on updating and fixing various bugs. I hope to have a fixed and updated version in -testing in the next few days. There doesn't seem to me to be much point in building the current version for EL-6, as I know it will not work properly, and will be updated so soon.

netsniff-ng is awaiting an upstream release to fix various issues with the current svn snapshot. I am closely following upstream mailing lists - the 0.5.5.0 branch is getting very close to being stable now and I expect to have a stable package of this long before RHEL 6 is released. I can build this one for EL-6 before this if desired, however the coming release will change command-line syntax and output formatting somewhat so my original intention was to hold off until the new package was ready.

Please let me know of any comments on either!

P.S. I am not currently subscribed to epel-devel list, but hopefully will have 5 mins today to sort that out. In any case, it's best to contact me directly for the moment.


As with Rawhide Bodhi is not currently in use for EPEL for EL-6, a switch
will be made closer to RHEL-6 General Availability.

We are aware that there are some packages which got branched which
either you may not be interested in maintaining for EL-6 or which we
have not caught as having made it into EL-6.

If you do not wish to maintain your package for EL-6 please follow the
usual process for orphaning a package for a branch :
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Orphaned_package_that_need_new_maintainers#Orphaning_Procedure

If you do not currently have the time to work on packages for EL-6, but
would like to continue maintaining you packages it would be appreciated if
you could either ask on the EPEL-devel mailing list or over on #epel on
freenode and we will find some extra help to help you get your packages
built for EL-6.

If we have not caught the fact that the package has now made it`s way
into EL-6 please follow the usual process for orphaning a package for a
branch :
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Orphaned_package_that_need_new_maintainers#Orphaning_Procedure
additionally please make sure to note that its moved to rhel when
requesting that it be blocked.

Any questions or concerns, please ask over on #epel on freenode or
the epel-devel mailing list
