If you want the Fedora Project to be something larger than a desktop
then please stop trying to throw out things that lots of people in the
Fedora community create that isn't a desktop.
Fedora is already much larger then desktop there are just certain people
in our community that have Gnome tunnel vision and cant see beyond that
and have for years.
While EPEL has nothing
to do with Fedora's traditional product, it has a lot to do with the
Fedora community building new and useful things for both the Fedora
Project to use as well as those outside the immediate Fedora
community. Since *we* use EPEL, it clearly has something to do with
Excuse me but I think we in Fedora as an community should be focusing on
delivering one LTS release even if it is just to bridge the cap and it
only exist between RHEL releases.
Now since RH does not want that or atleast not support that I have to
ask what carrot does RH throw to the EPEL maintainers to keep them
carrying the bits they dont want to maintain themselves?
The bottom line is that EPEL is not part of Fedora in any other way then
to consume our infrastructure resources, slowing down the rest of the
project doing so and bring unnecessary complication to our spec files as
well as keep them fairly outdated.
