We have pulled EPEL directly in some cases, but still, we don't apply
updates without really looking into them.  I think that's more what I
was trying to ask.  I hope people aren't just running yum-cron or 'yum
-y update' in cron on EL. I mean, from a maintainers perspective,
having to have Nagios3 and Nagios isn't fun.  From a client
perspective, you'd probably like both.  You'd HATE it if you went from
2->3 and it broke all your monitoring, because you might not catch
that for a while...
