CentOS and EPEL Meeting

Venue Info : We are going to be having this meeting at the CentOS Table in K.building at Fosdem on Sat 31st at 4:50pm local time.

Looking to have a CentOS & EPEL conversation over an early dinner ( and maybe drinks ) on Sat the 31st Jan 2015, near the Fosdem venue. The aim of this meeting is to discuss and probe options around how we might better integrate with each others efforts, and how SIG's in CentOS might be able to use and rely on EPEL repos. Please get in touch with KaranbirSingh if you are able to make it for this meeting.

People confirmed to be there at the moment :

  1. KaranbirSingh : How can we make the multiple repos work with each other, how can content always be a higher EVR for the same components that exist in EPEL, How can CentOS SIG people feedback into the EPEL builds without needing to signup for the Fedora process, How can EPEL packages run through some level of sanity testing before they are pushed to release repos - with the tests running in sync with CentOS repos.
