hmm. OK, makes sense.

I'm not suggesting that Fedora donates to/blesses CenOS builds, but rather 
having CentOS-Extras closer to EPEL. I imagine for some, who use CentOS-Extra 
and EPEL repos against RHEL* installs cross-listed packages would prove 

Anyway, I'm bidding for the cause I have limited interest in: my selfish goal 
was to find ways for EPEL to get more man-power to carry on. "Poaching" on the 
CeonOS side seemed reasonable. And I imagine situation could be viewed in 
reverse from CentOS side where they get some extra help (read: cross-
polination) from EPEL. 

I'll stop there :)
