- mass rebuild -- I'm all for giving maintainers a few days (maybe

Give packagers a chance to rebuild their own stuff was planed -- but I
targeted less than a whole week to finally start EPEL5 for real soon.
But the exact timeframe should be discussed today in the meeting.
- 3rd party repos -- Like I mentioned before, it is good to work with
other repos, but I also feel that EPEL should be pushed as a
"central" repo where all those that wish to contribute packages can
do so. Users do not need the extra headache of trying to coordinate
the packages in multiple repos if it can be avoided.
I currently think we maybe should put a kind of improved version of
or something in that direction into the Wiki-FAQ
I have something else which I'm not sure has been discussed
or else I am just blocking it out of my memory :) Yesterday I had
EPEL branches created for fortune-mod (how can you run a server
without fortunes?), but now I realize that fortune-mod needs recode(-
devel), which is part of FE. I do not maintain recode, and I'm not
sure that the person who does maintain it would like to do so for
EPEL. How can we proceed in cases like this so that I can import my
package which has dependencies in FE?
