Well, I assume that besides those that run RHEL/CentOS on Servers in
runlevel 3 there are a lot of people out there that run it on their
workstation; Fedora afaics moves to fast for a lot of people that prefer
to have a "stable" desktop -- they afaics prefer to only upgrade their
machine all 18-24 months (or even more seldom) to a new release.

/me looks up what tremulous -- ohh, a "First Person Shooter game based
on the Quake 3 engine", that why I don't know about it.

Well, I didn't build the games I maintain for EPEL yet, but I suppose
some people expect them to find in EPEL. I think we should ship them, if
the maintainer wants, but games IMHO have not a high priority.
