I don't see any effort from the Fedora side to do anything about this. It 
is not just about updating libdvdread in a orchestrated fashion, if the 
end goal is not to merge and provide an upgrade path, then it's a waste of 
time IMO.

At LinuxTag 2009 Thorsten Leemhuis basicly said that Fedora has too many 
rules to make it feasible.

But I am open to discuss anything as long as people can migrate to it. I 
do fear that the interest in the EPEL project is very centered to the 
latest RHEL only though, but even that can be fixed.
