EPEL 8

Hi,

It looks like Fedora EPEL people are having issues with the "modules"
architecture.
You all are probably busy with CentOS 8.
If anyone has spare time, take a look.

thanks

It seems that the CodeReady repository has some missing devel packages. This will make the build process harder ...

Even so. EPEL is a place where Fedora package maintainers put packages they
would like to be usable in EL environments. That means not every Fedora
package appears in EPEL and it also means that we do not have 1:1 package
between EPEL-6 and EPEL-7 and won't with EPEL-8 as various maintainers may
not wish to have a package there. So when EPEL-8 is 'open for business' not
a lot of packages will be there. Hopefully it will grow over time.. or it
might not. I can make no promises.

Mock, and awsclii, are the ones I wanted most. I've published two
tools I use for RHEL 8 mock building. One is the "reposync-rhel-8.sh"
script in my repository at
<a href="https://github.com/nkadel/nkadel-rsync-scripts/blob/master/reposync-rhel-8.sh" title="https://github.com/nkadel/nkadel-rsync-scripts/blob/master/reposync-rhel-8.sh">https://github.com/nkadel/nkadel-rsync-scripts/blob/master/reposync-rhel...</a>.
I use that on a RHEL 8 box to create an internal RHEL 8 yum mirror on
my licensed RHEL 8 host.

On top of that, I build a local copy of mock, using my tools at
<a href="https://github.com/nkadel/nkadel-rhel-8-mockrepo" title="https://github.com/nkadel/nkadel-rhel-8-mockrepo">https://github.com/nkadel/nkadel-rhel-8-mockrepo</a> . EPEL 8 is welcome
to my tools to build mock from that repo.. Building RHEL 8 or EPEL 8
packages requires setting up the relevant "epel-8-x86_64.cfg" to use
the "best=0" setting, to avoid confusion about the "module" RPMs.

Reading this, I wonder if its possible to build the meta information for module
packages out of a rpm list (without additional knowledge)? Similar to createrepo
that works just pointing to a directory. Scenario: pinning a version or incorporating
upstream packages in a local repository. Just curious because that module thing
completely passed me by since I don't use fedora. So, EL8 put the wall in front of me :-)

There may be some other data spread through the file which would be needed
for it to use this. This is one of the least complicated ones as it does
not have anything which is supposed to tell pungi to filter out packages in
the final compose or dependency chains in what it conflicts or requires.
Those are very long in text.. so I didn't want to spam email more than I am
already with the above.

And this is where I see I hit control+enter and not enter.. sending an
email which is not complete.

1. Thank you for bringing up an EPEL list here. I don't normally cross post
to this list because I am not sure how much is germane to this list.
2. Thank you for your interest in EPEL. It is helpful to have people
wanting to inform others of where we are.
3. We are having problems with a new release. We have had different
problems with RHEL-6 and RHEL-7 as each time our build system and rules
have changed greatly since the last time we added an EPEL branch. The
problems are not insurmountable and we are progressing towards having
packages built. It just isn't instant.

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for the explanation and sorry for the impatience

Thanks for the explanation, Stephen. Looking forward to what you all
come up with. Will there be any documentation leading those of use
using koji internally on what changes need to be made to our build
systems to support el8? Thanks!
