= Weekly EPEL Summary =

Week 45/2007

== Most important happenings ==

 * nothing earthshaking

== Mailing list ==

=== Noteworthy discussions ===

 * RHEL 5.1 --

  * EPEL builders are still RHEL 5.0; moving to RHEL 5.1 now on bears
the risk that we break users of CentOS 5.0; no real outcome from the
discussion yet; more discussion needed

 * Lots of packages wanted --

  * lots of deps of bugzilla are not yet in EPEL (lots of them: perl);
lot's of packages that a 3rd party repo would need to compile
xine-lib-extras-nonfree, mplayer and similar stuff are still missing as
well; help needed;

== Meeting ==

=== Next Meeting ===

20071107 at '''18:00 UTC''' in #fedora-meeting.

Please note that it's 18:00 UTC now again after the DST switch, so the
effective meeting time should stay the same for everyone!

=== Last weeks meeting ===

==== Attendees: ====

 * [:MikeMcGrath:mmcgrath]
 * [:KevinFenzi:nirik]

==== Summary ====

 * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/NextTestingStableMove did
the last move went well?

  * nirik> | I think the last move went pretty well...  do we want to
schedule them for specific times?

  * mmcgrath> | nirik: I'd schedule a time then see if the list wants us
to change it.  It could be a while before the next move.  although,
since its just you and me, perhaps the list would be better, or just
wait till the next meeting to talk about it.

  * nirik> | yeah, I would be happy with once a month or something, then
the question is how long something needs to be in testing.

 * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/NextTestingStableMove when
to do the move in EL4?

   * nirik> | I can try and work on it I guess...  plan on perhaps next
monday?  let the f8 release suck up all the bw, etc.

 * Clamav

   *  nirik is working on it

 *  why don't the broken dep reports go to the list?

  * mmcgrath> | A) The script we use, for some reason, can take a long
time to run and B) no one's done the work.

  * mmcgrath posted to the list asking people to help so it gets posted
to the list

 * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/Misc -- how to get all the
missing rpmfusion and bugzilla deps into EPEL and the wishlist empty as

  * mmcgrath> | I say, Add them to the wish list and get to contacting
each packager one by one until everything is in.

  * nirik> | I think contacting maintainers is the best way... and if
they don't answer branching, etc.
