sorry for the late reply, I'm even more busy here than in Vienna ;-)

And we already met on last years OSMC :)

Yep, that's true. Been fighting on this area while having plenty of 
other construction sites...

The general idea was to bring the Icinga provided spec file into shape 
for both, repoforge and upstream. Keeping a single location for 
changesets and users may switch/rebuild when needed to.

It's an idea to get it done for 1.9, but it may happen later as well. 
Targetting 1.9 is just the main reminder for everyone capable of 
implementing it.

how about el5?

I would really appreciate it if you could do a review on both, Icinga 
and Icinga Web in regards of

- does the spec file meet the requirements of rhel upstream (if not, 
please open issues on the dev tracker for it and/or providing fixes)

- which selinux policies should be created (my guess is 2 fedora 
releases, and 2 rhel ones)?

- update the selinux policies Dirk already created, and push them into a 
(git) patch

- if possible, take the rhel bug and sponsor the package once it's done.

- final step - join the icinga package team for easier communication on 
future release updates/changesets

I've added Dirk on CC to join the discussion.
