I'd call it... forking? :)

It would be nice courtesy for RH to notify maintainers when this
happens, but by no means a requirement.

They certainly do themselves a disservice however by pissing off
contributors through this sort of behavior (where at least they don't
even reply to queries -- I know someone has had a ticket open in bz
assigned to whoever took their EPEL package and it's never been touched
once).

A little PR would go a long way I think.

Probably preaching to the crowd here...
