Right -- the question is whether Red Hat actually cares about what is
going on in EPEL when they choose packages for inclusion in RHEL
proper. I was always under the impression that RHEL and EPEL had an
established working relationship that went both ways -- but perhaps
not all RHEL devs are aware of the work we do with EPEL?

Maybe this is just an awareness campaign waiting to happen? :)
