So far: yes. I'd hoped we would have had some more packages and more
media coverage, but it's a good start afaics. The broken deps problem
was worked around just in time afaics.

I'd really like to get this of the table. If somebody has concerns with
the latest proposal write them up please or (preferred) write a new
proposal that solves the problem that was raised with the current one in
the wiki -- if no ones does it soon I'd say let's go for
as that's better then what we have

Status? RHEL 5.1 is approaching and I'd say we copy the testing repo to
stable then again.

I'd like to see this discussed on the list. I have some ideas, but not
enough time to write all of the down now.

So: What do you guys want?

Note. I forgot the "yum for EPEL4" issue. Could you guys discuss this as
well? Jeff_S prepares some stuff iirc, we just need to say "go for it"
afaics. Someone raised concerns in the last meeting, but never took them
to the list which isn't helpful to get the problem solved. I'd say if
the concerns doesn#t make it to the list let's go for what Jeff proposed.
