How about just tell them to use yum-priorities?  Then, the server guys
do not get it and the client guys do.

You can also have another repo that is Client-only ... and the only
thing that goes there are deps that do not exist in rhel-server???

You are also going to have things that are in 5 and not 4 (and vice versa).

5 vs 4 is handled.  The policy is to provide what is NOT provided by
upstream (RHEL in this case).  So if RHEL 4 doesn't include something,
EPEL can.  If RHEL 5 includes it, EPEL will not.

The client vs server issues on RHEL 5 have been brought up before, but
still with no good solution offered...thus far.


You will need to handle all these somehow.
