00:01:21 < knurd> | thx bugzappers
00:01:29 <-- | No5251 has quit ("Kein Anschluss unter dieser
00:01:37 * | nirik is still here.
00:02:29 --> | J5 (John (J5) Palmieri) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:02:36 < knurd> | anybody seen mmcgrath? he seems rather busy in the past
00:02:42 < knurd> | or is he on vacation?
00:03:07 < nirik> | he's around... just busy I think.
00:03:18 <-- | axelilly has left #fedora-meeting ( )
00:03:28 * | knurd wonders where smooge went
00:03:59 < knurd> | well, let's start really slow
00:04:14 < knurd> | nirik, do you know if/where the EPEL dep checker script
00:04:31 < knurd> | mmcgrath or dgilmore installed one months ago
00:04:39 < nirik> | no idea. There is one mschwent had, but also one mmcgrath
00:04:39 < knurd> | but the one from mschwendt looks way better
00:05:10 < knurd> | nirik, did mschwendt install it as a cron job somewhere?
00:05:18 < smooge> | potty break
00:05:18 < knurd> | I thought he just kicked it manually
00:05:24 < nirik> | no idea. I haven't seen it run...
00:05:28 < nirik> | I can mail him and ask.
00:06:18 < knurd> | nirik, feel free to mail him, but I'd prefer to know
first if there is a script running somewhere alreday :/
00:06:20 < smooge> | the one that mmcgrath installed I think was broken and I
was trying to get some time to fix it.. which only came up now ;(. So mschwents is better
00:06:47 < knurd> | smooge, do you have access to the machined wher the old
00:07:01 < knurd> | or shall we just ask mschwendt to install his somewhere?
00:07:20 < knurd> | he likely has permissions to do so
00:07:52 < smooge> | no I don't mmcgrath sent out an email a while back
00:08:02 < smooge> | with the script in it.
00:08:20 < nirik> |
00:09:26 < knurd> | so, how to move on? ask mschwendt to install is? nirik, or
do you want to handle that? you likely have the needed permissions as well
00:09:42 --> | mdomsch (Matt_Domsch) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:10:11 < smooge> | mdomsch, has permission to. he can do anything :)
00:10:17 < nirik> | sure, I can ask him if we can just run it on the buildsys
box, or what.
00:10:27 < knurd> | nirik, k, thx
00:10:38 --> | JonRob (purple) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:10:40 --- | knurd has changed the topic to: EPEL SIG Meeting | next testing
-> stable move | knurd |
00:10:50 < knurd> | is prepared; docs were imrpoved as well
00:11:06 < knurd> | the whole preparation can be done in about 10 or 15
00:11:15 < knurd> | maybe even less with a quick machine
00:11:31 < knurd> | any questions? otherwise I'll quickly move on
00:11:37 --> | choke (Colby Hoke) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:11:50 --- | knurd has changed the topic to: EPEL SIG Meeting |
KojiAndBodhiForEpel | mmcgrath |
00:12:00 < nirik> | sounds good to me.
00:12:01 < knurd> | no mmcgrath, no Jeff_S thus likely no news
00:12:08 --- | knurd has changed the topic to: EPEL SIG Meeting | broken dep
reports go to the list | mmcgrath ? | http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/Misc
00:12:16 < knurd> | discussed already, thus skipping this
00:12:23 --- | knurd has changed the topic to: EPEL SIG Meeting | fill the
steering committee | all | http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/Misc
00:12:46 < knurd> | smooge, +1 for you becoming a steering committee member
00:13:08 < nirik> | +1 here.
00:13:19 < knurd> | but I think we need to have more +1 from at least 3 or
four other steering committee members
00:13:24 --> | stahnma (Michael Stahnke) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:13:32 * | stahnma arrives
00:13:35 * | quaid is here too
00:13:38 < knurd> | thus I suppose we need to wait another week or two before
it becomes official
00:13:40 < knurd> | ohh
00:13:45 < knurd> | okay, htere are two more
00:13:53 < knurd> | hi quaid, hi stahnma
00:14:06 < stahnma> | g'day
00:14:20 < knurd> | quaid, smooge, nirik and I just say "smooge, +1 for
smooge becoming a steering committee member"
00:14:23 --- | choke is now known as c_hoke
00:14:23 * | smooge waits to see if he is cool enough to sit with at the big
00:14:26 < quaid> | smooge for steering committee? +1
00:14:26 < stahnma> | +1
00:14:35 < knurd> | k, it's official now
00:14:39 * | quaid is a little kid in a booster chair
00:14:43 < knurd> | welcome to the stering committee smooge
00:14:44 < stahnma> | welcome to the big kids table
00:15:00 < knurd> | k, that makes seven again
00:15:06 < knurd> | I mentioned it on the list already
00:15:15 < knurd> | someone else wants to leave sooner or later
00:15:20 * | knurd is that someone else
00:15:38 < knurd> | I can stay around and help, but I'd like to get a more
free time for RPM Fusion
00:15:49 < knurd> | and some fresh ideas for EPEL would help as well
00:15:59 --- | stickster_afk is now known as stickster
00:16:13 < knurd> | thus I'd suggest we elect a new chairmen over the next
two weeks/in the next meeting
00:16:18 --- | c_hoke is now known as c_hoke_
00:16:23 < quaid> | I wonder if any of the RHTers who deal with RHX would be
00:16:31 < knurd> | any volunteers for that job?
00:16:46 < knurd> | quaid, I haven't seen much from them yet
00:16:56 * | mmcgrath is here now, sorry
00:16:58 * | quaid cannot do it but thinks any of the current and new member
dude would be good
00:16:58 --- | c_hoke_ is now known as c_hoke
00:16:59 < knurd> | there was only the zenoss discussions, but that just faded
00:17:00 * | stahnma doesn't know if he has the time available....
00:17:13 < quaid> | knurd: that is part of the idea, maybe if they were more
involved as leaders ...
00:17:15 < knurd> | nirik do you want to do it?
00:17:26 < quaid> | pile on nirik!
00:17:38 < knurd> | quaid, as I mentioned on the list: we can make the
steering committee even bigger if we want to
00:17:44 < knurd> | and if it's good for EPEL
00:17:48 < nirik> | ha. I would do it if no one else wanted the job... ;) If
someone did that would be fine with me too... I am also low on time.
00:18:01 --> | ldimagg__ (Len DiMaggio) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:18:08 <-- | ldimaggi_ has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:18:12 < stahnma> | that's how I feel, and can only make meetings
occassionally as they are in the middle of $DAYJOB
00:18:12 < knurd> | seven people in hte steering committe IMHO is a goal and
not a hard number/must
00:18:30 < knurd> | stahnma, with me out of the mix you guys could find a
00:18:38 < knurd> | as then everyone is based in the US
00:18:42 < knurd> | afaics
00:19:00 < stahnma> | I though Jeff_S was in Europe somewhere...
00:19:05 < quaid> | true that
00:19:07 < knurd> | he is?
00:19:13 < quaid> | Portland, OR I thought
00:19:23 * | stahnma could be confused, or maybe he was travelling when I
00:19:28 < quaid> | sheltren?
00:19:33 * | smooge deals with 20 phone calls at once...
00:19:39 < smooge> | thanks everyone for the support
00:19:52 < knurd> | have fun with the phone
00:20:05 < knurd> | smooge, or would you me interested in the chairmen's
00:20:10 < smooge> | I am interested
00:20:29 < smooge> | my platform is free beer and penguin mints
00:20:58 < knurd> | so, that makes smooge ("I am interested") and
nirik ("I would do it if no one else wanted the job...[...] I am also low on
00:21:03 < knurd> | afaics
00:21:21 < knurd> | I'd say we continue to discuss this on the list over
the next few days
00:21:25 < nirik> | perhaps throw that to the list and see if anyone else is
interested, and we can vote/dicuss next meeting?
00:21:27 < smooge> | okie dokie
00:21:30 < knurd> | and then find a solution in the next meeting?
00:21:32 < stahnma> | +
00:21:57 < knurd> | k, seems we are all in agreement here
00:22:06 < knurd> | I'll annouce it on the list then
00:22:18 < knurd> | anything else regarding this topic?
00:22:32 < knurd> | any other self nominations for EPEL steeting committee
00:23:19 * | knurd takes that as "no" and "no" and moves
00:23:26 --- | knurd has changed the topic to: EPEL SIG Meeting | broken dep
reports go to the list | mmcgrath ? | http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/Misc
00:23:29 < knurd> | mmcgrath, still around?
00:23:42 < mmcgrath> | yeah
00:23:47 < knurd> | is "the broken deps report" script stil lrunning
00:23:51 < nirik> | knurd: I mailed mschewnt asking about setting his script
up on the buildsys box
00:23:52 * | mdomsch is late I see
00:23:56 < mmcgrath> | AFAIK it is. let me look.
00:23:57 < mdomsch> | what did I get volunteered for?
00:24:46 < knurd> | mdomsch, nothing yet; but if you want to become a EPEL
steering committee member feel free to self nominate
00:24:49 < mmcgrath> | knurd: hrm, looks like the cron job got removed.
00:24:50 < smooge> | mdomsch, installing the script onto the buildsys box :)..
but I was joking
00:25:04 < mmcgrath> | I'll need to figure out what happened to it but will
make sure its running.
00:25:08 --> | rharrison (Russell Harrison) has joined #fedora-meeting
00:25:15 < knurd> | mmcgrath, don't invest any work
00:25:27 < knurd> | mmcgrath, afaics the script from mschwendt is way better
00:25:33 < knurd> | mmcgrath, I#d say we switch to his one
00:25:50 < knurd> | mmcgrath, mschwendt might even have permissions to set it
up on that box
00:25:56 < knurd> | and his script mails the list
00:26:08 < knurd> | something the old script didn't do
00:26:14 < mmcgrath> | knurd: that totally works for me, mschwendt rocks.
00:26:36 < mmcgrath> | hopefully his script doesn't take an hour to run
00:26:57 < knurd> | mmcgrath, k; then we are all up2date then; nirik will talk
to mschwendt about it
00:27:03 < knurd> | (or did already ;-) )
00:27:15 --- | knurd has changed the topic to: EPEL SIG Meeting | Free
discussion around EPEL
00:27:18 < nirik> | well, sent email in any case.
00:27:20 < knurd> | anything else?
00:27:35 < smooge> | ok how are we doing for packages etc?
00:27:46 < smooge> | how many are still in waiting to be branched etc? and wish
00:27:53 --- | jwb is now known as jwb_gone
00:28:12 < stahnma> | smooge: that sounds like good metrics to have
00:28:18 < knurd> | smooge, we have 1000 srpms now in epel5 + epel5 testing
and come close to 2000 rpms
00:28:39 < smooge> | is that src.rpms or combined x.rpms and src.rpms?
00:28:44 < knurd> | waiting to be branched -> there are about 5500 package
in fedora rawhide iirc
00:28:59 < knurd> | about 1600 srpms in rhel5
00:29:03 < smooge> | hmmm I counted 4500 src.rpms in fedora rawhide earlier
00:29:15 * | nirik should poke ixs and silug again... there are some perl
packages I need before I can branch munin...
00:29:32 < knurd> | smooge,
00:29:33 < knurd> | - 5634 packages
00:29:34 < knurd> | - 9260 binary rpms in devel
00:29:52 < knurd> | but I'm not sure how that's counted
00:30:11 < knurd> | my hope for the long term future for EPEL was: continue as
00:30:14 < nirik> | I see 5299 src.rpms in devel right now
00:30:31 < knurd> | and when RHEL6 ships poke Fedora maintainers and build
lots of stuff for EPEL
00:30:47 < smooge> | ah I was looking at 8/Everthings/SRPMS directory
00:31:10 < knurd> | smooge, then you missed new pacakges that entered Fedora
since F8 was shipped
00:31:19 < knurd> | as those are in the updates repo only
00:31:26 < smooge> | yeah.. 5299 is what I see too.
00:32:40 < smooge> | Ok one thing I would like to look at doing is getting a
discussion going on when we move packages from testing to stable. I would like to work on
a regular schedule for it so that 'customers' would know that Black Tuesday was
coming up or something
00:32:40 < knurd> | some of them make not much sense for EPEL
00:32:46 < knurd> | hunspell-dicts for example
00:33:21 < knurd> | smooge, the dates are: mid months around the 15th for
EPEL4 and early each months around the 1st for EPEL5
00:33:29 < smooge> | duh
00:33:35 < smooge> | I am way behind on stuff
00:33:50 < knurd> | tha's quite new; we settled on that one or two
00:33:51 < smooge> | ok need to go over the wiki to catch up with stuff.
00:34:15 < knurd> | smooge, np, keeping track of everything in Fedora-land is
00:35:02 < knurd> | anything else?
00:35:12 < smooge> | no thats about it.
00:35:32 <-- | kital has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
00:35:37 * | knurd will close the meeting in 30
00:35:43 < smooge> | I think I will go over the EPEL pages and see what needs
to be updated
00:35:46 < smooge> | Oh one second
00:35:49 < smooge> | mirrors
00:36:17 * | knurd waits
00:36:24 < smooge> | I think once we are pushing things regularly and getting
more packages.. it would be a good idea to start recruuitiong more mirrors
00:36:34 < smooge> | s/once/now/
00:36:53 < nirik> | sure, always good... how many do we have now?
00:36:54 < smooge> | how does this usually happen (and am I going over
something that is already said?)
00:36:56 * | nirik goes to look.
00:37:00 < knurd> | http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist/EPEL/
00:37:15 < knurd> | there are a few, but more can't hurt
00:37:24 < knurd> | I'm not on the mirror-list
00:37:29 < knurd> | anyone else?
00:38:10 < knurd> | asking on that closed list might be the best start for
00:38:19 < smooge> | I think I have a couple of things at the back of my mind.
I will try to get them out for the next meeting
00:39:12 < knurd> | smooge, thx; in case of questions with the mirror stuff
contact mdomsch; he maintains the stuff on http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org
and he should
be on the mirror-admins-list
00:39:17 < smooge> | Hmm I need to get john branched. Will go finish up my
fedora project activation stuff and work on that
00:39:54 < smooge> | knurd, actually I am also on the list :). They forgot to
take me off when I left RH :)
00:40:01 < knurd> | hehe :)
00:40:09 < knurd> | anything else?
00:40:12 * | knurd will close the meeting in 30
00:40:41 * | knurd will close the meeting in 10
