With the changes in CentOS, would it be possible now to include the 
epel-release package in the main CentOS repositories?  I believe this 
would help make the process of setting CentOS up a bit more convenient 
and accessible for both new users (who may have an awkward time finding 
and installing the epel release package) as well as more veteran 
administrators, who could effectively choose to enable epel by default 
by including it in kickstarts and so on.
