EPEL and Fedora in general maintains a source control (CVS) repository of the package .spec file, any patches, and the upstream source tarball (in a lookaside cache). It's from this source control that the package is built. However we have helper tools that will allow you to easily import an existing source rpm. If you so desire, your work on the spec and such can happen outside EPEL/Fedora's source control, and when you're ready to do a new build you can import the latest source rpm. You'll have to take care as to not stomp on any changes that may have been made directly in Fedora/EPEL though. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- All my bits are free, are yours?
