EPEL and Fedora relationship...
 
Hi everybody,

about a month ago I've submited my patches to

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=845394

in hopes that that would make it easy to bring newer pgpool over to EPEL,
subsequently to platforms I care for on a daily basis - RHEL boxes. However I
got no reply there whatsoever for a month, should I be following a different
path making packages shipped with Fedora more EPEL-friendly?

Shall I contact (last) package maintainer directly? Original author is the one
Bug is assigned to. Not sure whether I even should be posting here, but this
place seemed to be near the top of my choices of where to seek advise.

No, that seems reasonable... the maintainer might just be busy and
unable to deal with it yet.

You could try sending them a polite email directly asking if they could
take a look, or note in the bug that it's been a while...

Sure, you can. I'd keep such communication simple and polite...
"hey, noticed there wasn't much activity on bug foo, do you know if you
might get a chance to look at it soon" , etc.
