EPEL Proposal: Steve Gallagher's EPEL 8 Branch Strategy
So earlier this week I wrote up a proposal for EPEL-rawhide which was to go over various ideas the EPEL steering committee has been kicking around for a bit. This was to try and work into how to branch for EPEL-8 and also how to deal with https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Changes/Minor_release_based_composes and https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Changes/Release_based_package_lifetimes During the meeting it was clear that my strawman didn't have much in it, and needed more thinking. Thankfully Stephen Gallagher looked into the meeting and came up with some ideas that he wrote up and proposed to the list.. I recommend that you read the document and updates if you are interested in how branching in EPEL could work with EL7 and EL8.
