00:00:16 < knurd> | Meeting ping dgilmore, Jeff_S, knurd, mmcgrath, nirik, stahnma, quaid and everyone interested in EPEL -- EPEL meeting in #fedora-meeting now!
00:00:16 --- | knurd has changed the topic to: EPEL Sig meeting -- Meeting rules at http://www.fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Schedule/MeetingGuidelines -- Init process
00:00:22 < mmcgrath> | pong
00:01:00 * | dgilmore is here
00:01:01 < knurd> | quaid is traveling
00:01:05 --> | frozty_sa (frozt01100101) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:01:38 < knurd> | hmmm
00:01:40 < knurd> | that's not much
00:01:50 < knurd> | we maybe should do more stuff on the list
00:01:56 < knurd> | and less in the meeting
00:02:08 < mmcgrath> | or move meetings to every other week?
00:02:22 < knurd> | seems we don't get all hte importatn or interested people into the meeting
00:02:44 < knurd> | so maybe doing them only every two week and instead finish some stuff on the list might be easier for everyone
00:02:49 < knurd> | just a thought
00:02:52 < knurd> | mmcgrath, yeah
00:03:21 * | dgilmore like fortnightly meetings
00:03:57 --> | silug (S. Ill. Linux UG - http://www.silug.org/) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:04:11 < knurd> | and mailing lists don't have timezone-problems ;-)
00:04:25 < knurd> | I'll think about it some more and write to the list about it
00:04:25 < mmcgrath> | Thats true
00:04:53 < knurd> | anyway, let's do a quick meeting even with three people from the steering committee
00:05:01 --- | knurd has changed the topic to: EPEL Meeting|new push scripts for pushing to testing, adjust mock configs to use testing -- dgilmore
00:05:08 < knurd> | dgilmore, and progress?
00:06:08 < dgilmore> | knurd: not had a chance yet. i need pinging on it one night
00:06:09 --> | alexxed (purple) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:06:24 < dgilmore> | right now im concentrating on enabling secondary archs
00:06:32 < knurd> | dgilmore, I#d offer to help, but I don#t really know how things are working together
00:06:41 --> | sereinity_ (Sereinity) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:06:55 < dgilmore> | knurd: it should take about 30 mins or so work.
00:06:57 < knurd> | but I could update the builders if that is any help (and if I have access to the config files)
00:07:06 < dgilmore> | mostly i need reminding when i can do the work
00:07:08 <-- | sereinity has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:07:27 < dgilmore> | i cant do it during the day here
00:07:28 < knurd> | dgilmore, shall I ping you one every two days?
00:07:42 --- | sereinity_ is now known as sereinity
00:07:45 < knurd> | (no, I don#t take that serious)
00:07:52 < dgilmore> | knurd: if you can ping me first thing in the morning there would help
00:08:01 < knurd> | dgilmore, k, I'll try
00:08:03 < mmcgrath> | :)
00:08:07 < knurd> | dgilmore, thx for your help
00:08:38 < knurd> | mmcgrath, dgilmore, do we want to discuss "yum in EPEL4" or "branch for EPEL if Fedora maintainer does not react"?
00:09:07 < knurd> | or anything else?
00:09:21 --> | XulChris (Christopher Stone) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:09:41 < dgilmore> | knurd: we agreed on the Branch for EPEL issue last week
00:10:02 < knurd> | ohh, we did?
00:10:08 < dgilmore> | yum i think we should put it in make sure its less than CentOS version and not ship a yum.conf file
00:10:09 < knurd> | I thought the plan was to continue on the list
00:10:24 < knurd> | dgilmore and I raised some concerns
00:10:27 < dgilmore> | knurd: no we agreed to what i posted and what is in the wiki
00:10:36 < dgilmore> | with a revisit if we need to
00:10:44 < mmcgrath> | I think that was a miscommunication between the meeting and the list, I was under the impression it was settled as well.
00:10:47 < dgilmore> | knurd: i missed your concerns
00:11:02 < knurd> | dgilmore, send it to the list two days ago
00:11:24 < knurd> | dgilmore, well, take a look at it and tell me what you think
00:11:29 < knurd> | it's not that important
00:11:46 < knurd> | and can wait a bit more
00:11:55 < knurd> | so, shall we close the meeting for today?
00:12:15 < dgilmore> | knurd: sorry i wasnt clear the Fedora maintainer becomes comainter in EPEL
00:12:28 < dgilmore> | so the EPEL maintainer remains primary maintainer for EPEL
00:12:33 < knurd> | yeah, maybe I just got something wrong
00:12:41 < knurd> | ahh, okay;
00:13:05 < knurd> | was that just me beeing stupid or could/should the wording be improved?
00:13:12 < knurd> | if the latter: just do it
00:13:55 < dgilmore> | I assumed by Fedora Maintainer becomes Comaintainer that it was clear.
00:13:58 < knurd> | (no need to approve each and every detail in a meeting)
00:14:03 < dgilmore> | perhaps thats a language thing
00:14:07 < knurd> | dgilmore, I'll take another look
00:14:10 < knurd> | dgilmore, yeah, likely
00:14:13 < knurd> | anyway
00:14:18 * | knurd will close the meeting in 60
00:14:48 < knurd> | dgilmore, mmcgrath, I assume closing is fine for you?
00:14:51 * | knurd will close the meeting in 30
00:14:56 < dgilmore> | knurd: thats fine
00:15:02 < mmcgrath> | knurd: yeah, there's just not much going on that have decisions to be made I guess :)
00:15:10 < knurd> | yeah
00:15:13 * | knurd will close the meeting in 10
00:15:37 * | knurd will close the meeting in n

00:16:12 < mmcgrath> | 11:16 -!- Jeff_S has joined #fedora-meeting
00:16:13 < knurd> | mmcgrath, that was a quick one
00:16:17 --> | JSchmitt (Jochen Schmitt) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:16:19 < knurd> | hehe
00:16:23 < Jeff_S> | sorry guys, it's been a busy morning :(
00:16:25 < mmcgrath> | It was literally a second or two difference :)
00:16:27 < mmcgrath> | Jeff_S: no worries
00:16:36 < knurd> | Jeff_S, np
00:16:45 < knurd> | Jeff_S, we just discussed a bit to do more on the list
00:16:54 < Jeff_S> | ok
00:17:09 * | Jeff_S has very good or very bad timing depending on how you look at it ;)
00:17:09 < knurd> | dgilmore, mentioned "yum i think we should put it in make sure its less than CentOS version and not ship a yum.conf file"
00:17:27 < knurd> | Jeff_S, would that " not ship a yum.conf file" work?
00:18:15 < Jeff_S> | hmmm... maybe? :) I think that perhaps shipping it with an empty file with only a comment regarding "this is from EPEL, it won't work with RHEL unless you make some changes, blah blah"
00:18:31 < Jeff_S> | but we can discuss on list since I missed the meeting...
00:18:37 < knurd> | Jeff_S, could you just try so we know?
00:18:53 < Jeff_S> | well, I don't have any RHEL boxes, but I could try on centos
00:19:11 < knurd> | Jeff_S, should be good enough I'd say
00:19:13 < Jeff_S> | anyone have a RHEL box they would let me screw up?
00:19:35 * | knurd has no RHEL4 boxes
00:20:08 < Jeff_S> | no problem, I'll test it out on centos and see what happens
