I did a check of all the packages in the beta announcement back when it
came out. 

The following are packages in epel-5 that are going to be in RHEL-5.1: 

yum-utils
dnsmasq
python-imaging
perl-TimeDate

All of the RHEL-5.1 packages are newer than the ones in epel-5, so
upgrades should work fine. 

I think once 5.1 is out those packages should be dead.packaged in
epel-5 and we just go on with the ones in RHEL-5.1...

Does anyone spot anything I missed with this?
