= Weekly EPEL Summary =

Week 05/2008 

== Most important happenings ==

 * EPEL5 testing -> stable move happened (as always around the 1st each month). We have now 1011 different software packages (counting SRPMs) in the EPEL5 proper repositories for RHEL5/CentOS5.

 * Two things from https://www.redhat.com/archives/epel-devel-list/2008-January/msg00191.html

  * Stephen J Smoogen ([:StephenJSmoogen:smooge]) filled the vacant seat in the EPEL Steering Committee

  * Thorsten Leemhuis ([:ThorstenLeemhuis:knurd]) will step down as chair for the EPEL Steering Committee; he also plans to leave it, thus there is another seat to fill (see also https://www.redhat.com/archives/epel-devel-list/2008-January/msg00177.html ); self nominations welcome

== Mailing list ==

Summary:

 * broken dep reports go to the list  | mmcgrath ? | http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/Misc

  * the old script isn't running anymore

  * discussing how to move forward; the script from mschwendt looks better then the old one, as it mails the list as well (and likely runs faster); more discussions needed (see also: https://www.redhat.com/archives/epel-devel-list/2008-January/msg00194.html )

 * next testing -> stable move | knurd | http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/NextTestingStableMove

  * knurd prepared it prepared and improved the docs how to do the move

  * no news from Jess_S or mmcgrath 

 * fill the steering committee  | all | http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/Misc

  * smooge (who self nominated on the list) was approved as steering committee member

  * knurd want's to leave:

   * thus we have a vacant seat again; self-nominations welcome; quaid: "I wonder if any of the RHTers who deal with RHX would be interested"

   * smooge and nirik are nominated as new chairmen; more nominations welcome; new chair will be elected in the next meeting

   * new meeting time can be discussed 

 * Free discussion around EPEL

  * smooge> | ok how are we doing for packages etc? how many are still in waiting to be branched etc? and wish list?

   * no exact numbers, but there are likely about 2500 - 3000 packages (counting SRPMS) in Fedora which are not in EPEL

  * smooge> | I think once we are pushing things regularly and getting more packages.. it would be a good idea to start recruuitiong more mirrors

   * more mirrors can't hurt; asking on that closed mirror list might be the best start to get more mirrors
