Thanks for everyone.. I will correct missing accounts later.


* Xavier Lamien board membership discussed. Realized we needed a bit
more time to review the candidate..

* Smoogen elected chairman of the board. Sinatra out for revenge.

* New meeting time was tabled until we had reviewed and probably
elected Xavier to the board. Updated page is needed for when people
are available for meeting times.

* Koji and Bodhi for EPEL was discussed. Delay is other projects and
the amount of work needed to 'protect' RHEL binaries. Using CentOS
instead was discussed and to be looked at.

* Dep checking and reporting on the list. Work to use Michael Swendt's
scripts look to be in order.

* Epel announce list. Discussion of how to better announce build
changes and pushes to stable were discussed. RSS feeds were prefered
by some and email lists by others.

* Free Discussion. Stanhma submitted a paper for the Red Hat summit on
using EPEL in an enterprise situation. We hope it gets accepted.
