Last time I checked, there were issues with supporting secondary
architectures in EPEL, and those issues were to be discussed at Flock.
Is there any conclusion from those discussions?
There was indeed discussions, but mostly about i386.
Dennis said he thought we could set things up so we could build i386
against CentOS, and still build x86_64 against RHEL.
There wasn't too much further discussion about s390 specifically.
I would like to contribute patches to some RPMs so they can be built
on IBM z, but it doesn't seem that EPEL can support a new architecture
Yeah, there's still questions about builders (where and controlled by
whom) and how to handle failures, etc.
Perhaps we could discuss outstanding questions in the next meeting
