I'm also interested in,
EPEL 6 is announced for the end of August
Now I think the first task would be to renew our buildsys before
anything else. (switch to koji and git).
Last time I've talked about it, it was missing a serious server
(anything not a VM and with more than 256M of RAM).
Okay, how serious a server do we need? I have a dual-core opteron
1.8GHz box w/4GB of RAM sitting around doing absolutely nothing at
home right now. If we really want to kickstart things towards koji and
git, I could throw rhel6 on it and make it available. Its obviously
not super-high-end, so not sure if it could be both the hub and a
builder, but its not a VM and has way more than 256M of RAM... Not
sure what it has for disks at the moment either, but storage is cheap
(the case has 4 bays in it).
But until the buildsys is open, maybe we can start to branch cvs, it
will make illusion that we can start packaging works at least.
The other part of the EL-6 maintainability, is the kernel module part,
and given that the kmod style didn't addressed the issue that was
raised previously, I think it will be a problem to have something
undermaintained there, I would prefer to go with http://elrepo.org/
for that side of things.
