Can you point me to this discussion? I didn't see anything at all on the
EPEL devel mailing list, but maybe I missed it.

I don't think that EPEL wants to move out of Fedora (there are a lot of
advantages to sharing dist-git and koji, at least), but I at least would be
interested in seeing more collaboration where it makes sense. I don't know
if a SIG is exactly the right framework for that, but it's possible that it

In any case, to my knowledge, this is simply a conversation that hasn't
happened yet.
