Interest in assisting with the Centos s390 disto
 
OK, I have a s390x CentOS 4.5 up and running under VM. Its current on
maintenance and now I am ready to start on the CentOS 5.x
What are my next steps? Is there doc somewhere?

Thanks
Ray Hand

Is one of those centos-4 ? thats the best place to start. get a minimal
centos-4 install setup. I can then work with your and get the bootstrap
stuff for centos-5 on there. ( I presume its c5 you are interested in
helping with, since c4 is already there ).

I am not sure what we would achieve with a SIG at this stage, lets say
when there are 10 people contributing to the s390 effort we can move
away from this mailing list to one dedicated to -devel-s390. howse that
?

hi,

next step - get mock-0.6.13 setup on there, and get the basic packages
needed for the buildroots done. I shall post a list of the minimal set
you need today

OK, more stupid questions. Where do I get mock from (tried a yum
install and that didn't work) and where do I get the source packages
from?

Thanks
