At last week's EPEL meeting, it was proposed that at least a
governing committee be put together to help on the following items:
1) EPEL.next (EPIC or EPEL-rolling, etc)
2) Formalizing various amounts of unwritten rules for package addition,
removal and maintenance in current repos.
3) Lower workload on Kevin Fenzi and Dennis Gilmore as they have been EPEL
since the last EPSCO was around.
Are EPEL.next and current EPEL going to be steered by the same people?
At that meeting the following people were nominated to the committee:
Todays (2014-08-29) meeting this was 'formalized' with people attending
the meeting. Added to that was a beginning proposal of committee
Is the meeting time also formalized? I can make this most of the time, but
forgot this morning. (Added to calendar now).
The governance structure will be a short term organization to set up
policies and procedues in place for continual maintenance of EPEL. The term
of the committee will end 3 months after either new repos are setup or
voted not going to happen by said committee. If a longer term running
committee is required, the previous board will set up policies for
elections and term lengths before the short term committee ends.
After the meeting I realized that wasn't a good deadline so would like to
alter it these changes should be completed by the Fedora 22 release date.
When is this project release date? On
2015-XX-XX. That's a lot of leeway.
