Well, we have tried to do this in the past, but no one has really
followed through to get it all working with minimal false positives. 

It has to run inside fedora infrastructure in order to see the RHEL
repos we use (Or if it runs outside that, it uses centos, which has a
different set of packages in some cases... ie, no ppc). 

If someone is willing to take the lead on getting it running, that
would be great. I will be happy to help them. 

Also, there is some move on the auto-qa to have bodhi do dep checks, if
we could use this same setup for EPEL then it might be able to happen
at update submission time.
