Yeah I've seen that information. Correct me if I am wrong, but
like there is still a good deal of work to be done to bring the EPEL-6 repo
up to the level of completeness that EPEL-5 is at.
What I don't want to do is rebuild this only to find myself still needing
Fedora-12 repos to get all of my applications back up and running. I think
I'd feel comfortable doing this once you guys thought you were at (let's put
a precise number on a fuzzy guess) 90% completeness. Do you feel like you
are that far along or do you still feel like there are some significant gaps
in packages that need to be brought over?
Thanks for your help,
Well I think we need to understand what you mean by completeness? Due
to every release requiring/providing quite a bit of different things,
we have not had a real 100% level because things may have been
supplanted, EOL'd, not required from what was in EL-4 or EL-5 to EL-6.
So what packages do you need for your worksite and then we can see
what we have to build still. [Yes it is a chicken and an egg problem
but somehwere a lizard has to start sprouting feathers.]
