Not sure what you mean. The thing is this:

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/$releasever/
gets translated to
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5server/
by yum. That dir doesn't exists, so we simply use "5" instead of
"$releasever" in yum pointers.

This doesnt sound like a good idea. You lose the automatic, "I upgrade from RHEL5 to RHEL6 and automatically get EPEL 6 stuff".

I would suggest simply making a symlink: "ln -s 5 5Server"

That is what I did for the unofficial Dell yum repos.

Don't forget about "5Client" too.  Not sure what else...
