[CentOS] Backuppc-updates on CentOS

Hi all,

I installed BackupPC on one of my Centos 5.4-machines following the wiki at 
http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/BackupPC#head-725ed151d366bcf182cea92f765c373900cfc9dc, 
where BackupPC is installed from the c5-testing repo.

root at mach012 ~/ [0]# rpm -qa backuppc
backuppc-3.1.0-1.el5.centos
root at mach012 ~/ [0]#

Seeing how there's been some updates to BackupPC in the near past, I thought 
I'd run a yum update to get the updated package. That didn't work. So I 
searched pbone.net for a BackupPC package on CentOS5 but didn't find any. 
Doing the same search for RHEL5 gave me two packages (one for i386 and one for 
x86_64);  v3.1.0-5.
	Looking more closely I saw that the RHEL5-packages were from epel, a repo one 
maybe shouldn't choose as a primary repo for ones CentOS-systems if you  can 
help it. At least that's the impression I got from the various posts to this 
list.

I thought all packages available from the prominent American upstream provider 
got a treatment from the CentOS crew? Am I wrong or am I missing something 
really basic, or some part of the CentOS philosophy here? Or isn't BackupPC a 
package worthy of being CentOSified? 8-)

Thanks.
