RPMFusion maintains all the kernel modules I'm interested in supporting

exist yet). I would contribute OpenAFS to complete the set.
Hey, welcome Jack
I assume folks are interested in having OpneAFS, the nVidia drivers,
Open VM Tools, and other stuff maintained for EL6?
Actually people would. however, some stuff need to be done to get
things work from RPM Fusion
What will be the
relationship with EPEL in for EL6-land?
You'll sure have better comment about it at epel@ list.
What about EL5? Is there interest in using the older kmod v1 standard
to add kernel modules there?
Are the kmod builds automated or must jobs be submitted to rebuild those
for each kernel? I plan on extending my yum module to know what to do
in this case for kmodv2 as well.
Build request for each kernel release.
For EL5, i would stay on kmodv1 and move on to kmodv[1-2] for EL6.
