The Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) was started in 2007 as a method to make Fedora packages available which were not in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). At that time, there was a strong pull by system administrators for long lived packages to match the slow changing lifetime of RHEL. Over the last decade, the growth of agile workflows and devops culture have made the need for faster moving packages and tools than what the older EPEL workflows could handle. EPEL needs continual renewal in order to make sure that it can deliver these tools to the places using it. Kevin Fenzi and Stephen Smoogen will discuss the proposed future roadmap for Enterprise Linux versions and listen to what developers want to see in the next iteration of EPEL.
