As I mentioned earlier already, I'll miss tomorrows meeting. Sorry.

dgilmore, could you push newly build packages once in the next 24 hours?
And can somebody after that tun a script to check what deps are still
broken? We have only 8 days left and I don't want to go into a

if (broken deps);
	delay_epel_annoucement by one week;

loop that might never end.

To avoid that I'd say we should on Sunday try to move all packages with
broken deps to testing that can be moved there without introducing new
broken deps (I'm willing to help with that if I get the neccessary
permissions to the repo and the spam-o-epel script).

Could you guys discuss this please tomorrow?

Only ran until EL5Server afaics which lead to "interesting" results. And
progress here?

Please get this ratified; gets a +1 from me.

We should adjust this one or two days before the final announcement and
make sure no new broken deps hit the repo.

Can wait

Discussed on the list currently, but should get attention in the meeting
likely as well.
