You have a different vision for Enterprise Extras than we have been
discussing so far.  What we have been discussing really is Fedora Extras
rebuilt for RHEL/CentOS/etc.  We aren't making additional guarantees to
the consumer of the packages about the suitability of the packages for
running on their servers (except that we will be supporting the packages
for the increased lifetime of the CentOS/RHEL distro.)

 So is there any preliminary information about which RHEL version is
decided fo rebuilding all FE packages for RHEL? I mean there are
currently RHEL 3,4,5 with various updates that mean totally if i am
correct 13 version in all present of RHEL.
 And how can i solve then dependencies problem if i decide to rebuilt
my FE package for RHEL3? RHEL is known as stable product because it
always contains old but stable packages from upstream releases. So how
can we solve dependencies problems like if some packages need latest
or newer version of dbus or hal for any FE packages?

Parag.
