With the koji upgrade on the weekend support was deployed for
this enables building of EPEL in koji. I have set up some tags and targets for
doing EPEL scratch builds. right now you can scratch build to dist-5E-epel
and dist-4E-epel. there is an issue i need to work around with EL-4 the old
hack we used to provide a kernel to ppc doesnt work. I am working on a
solution to that.
To move building to koji we need to get bodhi setup and redo the
engineering process to closely match that of Fedora. What this means is that
you will need to file a ticket with releng to have a package added to the
buildroot if you need to build against it. it also means that things can
hit stable sooner.
Ehh, do we really want that apart from security updates or important
bugfixes (which we can and do push within minutes these days already if
I ask because the "monthly" move from testing to the porper repos has a
important side-effect: I slows everything down when compared to the
quickly moving Fedora, which for EL repos IMHO is something good.
