Initial Proposal for doing Enterprise Extras



I would like to suggest the following plan for Enterprise Extras:

1) There are 4 channels per {Scientific/Centos} Enterprise Linux
    extras
    extras-devel
    extras-testing
    extras-updates

  [proposed naming convention: extras-2el, extras-3el, extras-4el, extras-5el]

2) Extras are produced/updated on a 6 month basis. Stuff is usually
done in extras-devel but at 5 months a lockdown is done and they are
pushed as being the next dot release (2.1.0,3.1.0,4.1.0,5.1.0 ->
2.2.0,3.2.0,4.2.0,5.2.0)

3) Extras-devel is where development and feature changes are done for
each 6 month lockdown.

4) Extras-testing is where fixes to the current locked down version is
completed before being pushed to extras/extras-updates

5) Extras-updates gets security and fixes to the 'locked' down version
in extras.


So for example:

foo-bar-1.0-1 is put into Extras
foo-bar-1.2-1 is worked on in extras-devel for the next 6 month release
foo-bar-1.0-4 is in Extras-testing to fix a problem in initialization
foo-bar-1.0-2 is in Extras-updates to fix a security problem and will
be replaced with 1.0-4 when it passes testing.
