Which were always part of the "AS"/"Advanced Platform" entitlements,
and rebuilt by most "EL Rebuilds," from virtually day 1.  And these
have not been allowed under the past EPEL guidelines from day 1 as
well, unless I am mistaken.

So you would suggest EPEL take over this role, and the EL Rebuilds
drop it as well?

Then why isn't that left to "EL Rebuilds" instead of Red Hat's
sponsored Fedora Project when it comes to Enterprise Linux bits?

Also, what do you believe this does to Red Hat customers who use EPEL?
 Or are you under the believe Red Hat customers should not, which has
been suggested prior?  Who does EPEL serve?

Does Fedora's EPEL serve as the unified rebuild tree from Red Hat's
SRPMS?  Or where is the line drawn?

And what if Red Hat does?  Do you accept such?  And who from Red Hat?
And how does that work?
