Yeah, we can work on that once we actually have some packages :-) But
the idea of a disc of additional packages vs. a complete Fedora respin
seems like the right solution for me (like I already wrote ;-)).
Clean custom Red Hat Linux rpm packages : http://freshrpms.net/
Fedora release 7 (Moonshine) - Linux kernel 126.96.36.199-81.fc7
Load : 0.30 0.30 0.27

As Bob announced some weeks ago on repo-merge-discussion already -- some
wok is planed for the server which is hosting
repo-merge-discussion(a)fedoraunity.org and it would be easier to not move
the list to the new server.
That work is scheduled for next Monday. So I suggest we fully move to
the new list (e.g. rpmfusion-developers) immediately. To realize that I
suggest we invite all subscribers from the current list to the new one
that haven't subscribed there by Sunday. Then send a final "This list is
EOL mail" to repo-merge-discussion and disallow posting. Until then just
CC both lists.
What are your comments, ideas or opinions about packaging kernel
modules? Fedora has technically banned them AFAIK, but that won't go
well for the proprietary drivers... Should we have both kmod and dkms
available, or maybe something else?
I worked a bit on comps.xml files for rpmfusion. As CVS is not yet
available it put the current files as text in the wiki:
Sorry, that list contains only livna packages up to now, as it's based
on one a comps.xml from livna :-/. We over the next weeks should add
all the other rpmfusion packages.
The current files likely still contain some bugs here and there; some
packages might be in the wrong category as well. Thus please check if I
sorted your packages correctly and adjust everything as needed. If
needed also feel free to add new categories, if there are enough
packages of a kind to warrant a dedicated category.

This patch is now merged and will be available with 1.0.5rc2 in few days...
Nicolas (kwizart )
Kevin setup CVS (¹). It's mostly ready but not usable yet as it needs to
be tied into the FAS, on which thias had been working on iirc.
But there is one thing package maintainers can do already *now*: prepare
the CVS branch requests for your packages. We'll use the
Fedora-old-style format that is explained at
Put your request on http://rpmfusion.org/BranchRequests please. Once the
CVS is finally ready we can just work through the queue and finally
start -- that saves a bit of time.
Please make sure you put your packages in the proper section -- e.g.
software that is open source software according to the Fedora guidelines
in the "free" section and everything else in the "nonfree" section.
(¹) -- many thx kevin!
I am currently comaintaining these with XulChris @ dribble. Now that we
have some basic infrastructure for rpmfusion, I wonder where should the
packages go: free or non-free? The license  is basically BSD +
commercial usage ban, so IMO this qualifies these emulators as
non-free-as-in-speech. Any other opinions?
I'm not really interest in mythtv (¹), but it seems some people would
like to see mythtv in rpmfusion -- I know from at least two people, but
I suspect there are more.
Thus a bit of coordinations might be nice -- otherwise we might run into
a situation where multiple people waste time and energy to prepare a
package for review in parallel.
One package I know of besides the one from Axel in atrpms is
Will Tatam according to http://rpmfusion.org/WillTatam also seem to be
interested in maintaining mythtv for rpmfusion.
Are there more people that have mythtv on the todo-list? If yes: might
be a good idea if you guys coordinate your efforts...
(¹) -- and I care more to get rpmfusion running first before we work on
new packages, but other people have different priorities, so discussing
thus now might be wise

I forgot that FFmpeg can dlopen() libfaad, which would solve this issue.
I'll look into it too.
