Description Gang Wei 2013-06-28 05:16:13 EDT
Attention Marek

Your packages mimepull currently found in Fedora have
been requested for inclusion in Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux
(EPEL)[1] .  Thus far, while looking at our Contributor Status[2]  page,
we are unable to determine if you are planning to build your packages
for EPEL.

If you are interested in building, please follow the Branching
Procedure[3]  for EPEL.

If you maintain several packages (> 2) you can also use a scripted
branching method (all packages from a contributor) by using the
Scripted Branch Process[4] .

If you are not interested in EPEL or don't feel like you have the time
to put your packages into EPEL, the EPEL project would like to request
that a co-maintainer who is a part of EPEL be added to your packages.
To do this, please follow the co-maintainer process[5] .

We appreciate your help with EPEL.

Comment 1 Marek Goldmann 2013-07-05 04:01:07 EDT
We won't be able to proceed, because mimepull requires Maven to build and Maven is not available in EPEL at this time.
Comment 2 Gang Wei 2013-07-05 04:15:08 EDT
Thanks for the response. If that is true, then we might need to investigate how to remove dependence on mimepull...
Comment 3 Marek Goldmann 2013-07-31 06:27:09 EDT
I'm closing this issue now, since we don't have Maven in EPEL yet. Please reopen once we'll have at least the build system in EPEL.
