Steve, Thank you for your inquiry.
I exchanged messages with Matt Farrelle (matt(a)redhat.com) via bugzilla comments. I also
recently spoke with Matt personally at condor week 2010. Matt maintains the condor
package in fedora, as well the classads package which is the only non-EPEL package that
condor depends upon. I believe Matt is also involved in Redhat's MRG product.
Matt is not interested in branching the condor and classads packages for EPEL. He gave me
permission to branch them into EPEL, and he asked to be listed as a co-maintainer for
those packages in EPEL, in case he needs to fix something down the road. He also asked me
to let him know if I had any problems or questions.
The purpose of this paragraph is to let you know that I don't know how long it will be
before I actually can do the work of packaging condor in EPEL: Steve, I am a member of
fedora (pretty new to fedora), but I am not yet a fedora package maintainer (much less an
EPEL package maintainer). I have my first package (gretl) in a stat that I think is
pretty close to done, but I have not touched it since returning from condor week. (I want
to do a couple more changes to it before submitting it, and I also need to figure out
currently unknown dependencies [fails to build in mock])
If you, Steve, or anybody else is interested in branching condor and classads into EPEL, I
think that would be great. It should be pretty easy since Matt already has it building on

Hello, my name is Lee, and I am new to the epel-devel-list.
I am looking for the best way to get condor related packages that are
currently available in Fedora to become available in EPEL. I've looked
through the epel-devel-list history from present back through mid-2007 and
see no mention of condor.
Did you manage to make any progress with checking condor and EPEL.
After reading https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ
I'm still not sure how
I understand that an EPEL package maintainer needs to be determined, and it
seems the fedora package maintainer has first dibs on providing the package
to EPEL. However, I do not see a way to contact the persons that are
maintaining the packages below to see if they would be interested in
providing them in EPEL.
I think the wish-list is only for things that are not currently in Fedora.
Below are the fedora packages I would like to see in EPEL, how can I proceed
to help that happen?
condor -- Condor: High Throughput Computing
condor-ec2-enhanced -- Condor EC2 Enhanced AMI package
condor-ec2-enhanced-hooks -- Condor EC2 Enhanced hooks
condor-job-hooks -- Condor Job Hooks
condor-low-latency -- Condor's Low-Latency Scheduling
