Just to be clear here.. EPEL doesn't have an organization which could say
yay or nay on it. It is a anarcho-syndicalist commune at best (an
autonomous commune would be going to far). Some people say yay, some people
say nay, some people say whats in it for me. I expect that most are waiting
to see how the CentOS SIGs get put into place and release stuff with 7 to
see what they want to do.
