We are pleased to announce that Red Hat is establishing a small team 
directly responsible for participating in EPEL activities. Their job 
isn't to displace the EPEL community, but rather to support it 
full-time. We expect many beneficial effects, among those better EPEL 
readiness for a RHEL major release. The EPEL team will be part of the 
wider Community Platform Engineering group, or CPE for short.

As a reminder, CPE is the Red Hat team combining IT and release 
engineering from Fedora and CentOS.

Right now we are staffing up the team and expect to see us begin this 
work from October 2021. Keep an eye on the EPEL mailing list[1] and the 
associated tracker as we begin this exciting journey with the EPEL
