It's a Monday again, so it's EPEL meeting day...  Since 1930 UTC
worked so well the last couple of weeks I suggest we use it again.

So the following are items I'd like to see on the agenda, any one else
got something to add?

* Signing off on the new time
1930 GMT in #fedora-meeting seems to be working well, some of the
highest turnouts we've seen.

* Bugs Update
Any one got anything interesting to say on this this week?

* EL-6 Branching
There are a number of packages that didn't branch for EL-6 due to
inclusion in beta 1 that seem to have gone.  Should we just branch
them?  Or let people who need them branch them without waiting for a
existing EL maintainer who's not done anything branch them?  (I've got
at least 1 package with broken deps as a result)

Similarly, what to do about packages that are in Workstation or Workstation Optional packages but are needed to satisfy deps in EPEL6 packages.

I would like to see us clone these packages in EPEL6 *and* add a higher than default cost to the EPEL repo so that users of Workstation continue to get their packages from RHEL rather than EPEL.

Currently, policy seems to be to wait for for RHEL 6 GA and see if there's an additional channel provided for Server users containing the necessary Workstation packages, leaving the broken deps in the meantime. I'd say that if that "productivity channel" appears then by all means untag the cloned packages - but if it doesn't - what then? Will we be unable to provide packages like bugzilla that need these dependencies? Or will we then clone the packages after all?

At least let's have a plan for how to resolve these dependencies.
