Those are IMHO round about one of the targets for EPEL -- even if there
is no company behind EPEL, they get stuff missing in RHEL easily with EPEL.

I thought about this some more last night. Would the EPEL repository
be better suited with an 'alternate' tree structure?

X.old            Last release
X.stable        Current release
X..testing      Stuff might be pushed to current release
X.rawhide    Stuff that might go into testing for next release.


with symbolic links to show the tree structure.
4.4 -> 4.old
4.5 -> 4.stable
4.6 -> 4.testing
4.7 -> 4.rawhide

This would allow people who are doing different levels of testing to
aim at a said set?
