we will also announce our intention to branch.
Every package that is not orphaned in EL-5 will be branched for EL-6.
There needs to be some provision here for things included in EL-6 already
(I'm sure there will be some)
for instance python-hashlib is in EL-5 to support stronger hashed
the buildsystem. its part of newer pythons so my nobranch file will contain
"Exists in newer python" this is just a historical something so if someone
down the road questions why they can go and see
We will give 2 weeks from announcement before we setup the cvs branches. this
will let us make sure anything thats in EL-6 gets nobranch files we will be
branching EL-6 branches from F-12 branches
Can't there be some automation of this part - examine the EL-6 repo
for things that obsolete existing EPEL packages?
