I'm happy to hear that some sort of FE-for-EL framework is in the
offing.  It would be convenient (for me, anyway) to have some of the
cool and useful FE packages only a "yum install away" on RHEL.

OK, this means testing.  Obviously it would be best to test packages
for RHEL (and CentOS) by *actually* using them on RHEL (and CentOS)
and seeing what happens.  So, how about some sort of arrangement

  maintainers can, if they want to and perhaps per some 
  approval process, get a no-cost RHEL licence in return 
  for doing the normal maintainer testing, debugging, etc. 
  for (some of?) their package(s) on RHEL.

A fair trade ?
