Please explain from which repos RHEL-AP is composed for both RHEL 4 and
5. Maybe I am really the only maintaining packages in EPEL, but I do
only know kind of how CentoOS works and is splitted in Repositories. But
they use RHEL AS afaics, so their package set already seems to differ.

Also the mock config should probably be configured to use only the
packages from CentOS that are supposed to exist in BuildRoots for EPEL.
