whether to run against CentOS or the private RHEL repos
I'd prefer the private RHEL repos if that's possible without to much
trouble. CentOS would be fine as well, but there are small differences
(no PPC (yet) for example; small delay with updates, new releases)
Well how many people have PPC :)?

No idea :)

Actually I was going to look at testing against both.

Yeah, might be a good idea.

This allows us
to catch items where CentOS has something and RHEL doesn't..

Well, no offense, but that's afaics would be a bug in CentOS, as they
aim to be compatible.

Uhm no. Red Hat does not always ship various -devel and some other packages when a package was built. CentOS also has made sure that you get everything that would have come from a package so that you could use it to do other development. This was a big problem in 2/3 and a bit in 4. I think 5 may not have had this issue.

and if
something conflicts with the CentOS 'extras' repo so that problems can
be managed correctly.

Good idea.

But on the other hand: the repotag wars were now nearly a year ago and
one of the bad guys (/me) leaves soon. Maybe we could somehow come over
it and make peace with the CentOS guys and work together in a better way
that works better for both sides? That was my and afaics everybody's
else plan when we started EPEL, but didn't happen due some
mis-communication and misunderstandings (that's the short story and I
blame myself for a few of those issues that lead to the current
situation) in the initial EPEL start phase.

That is my hope. I can't say that it will happen, but I will work towards it.
