A quick voting here wouldn't mean anything, as I said in another place
in the thread. There are other contributors that will certainly
contribute to EPEL that are not there, among them major Fedora
contributors that have relevant technical expertise on that subject.
EPEL is barely existing, lets not pretend there is allready a community
OK, so if we don't exist, what exactly is then our mandate here? Why
is there any traffic on this list?
This *is* the part of the Fedora community that *cares* about RHEL and
EPEL. And there were invitations sent to various Fedora lists where
contributors were invited to join up.
The Fedora community is really existing. And also the majority
necessarily relevant. I have seen people being wrong against a
consensus because their use case was different and they had have
more experience on a subject.
If you don't trust the majority how will you get to some decision at
all? It's either a majority's call or a benevolent dictator's.
