I use 'mrepo' [1] to sync EPEL (and other repos) to a local mirror so
systems not publicly routed can get packages.  It generates an email
of repo changes every time it runs, so I know what is added and

I also subscribe to the epel-package-announce list [2] so I can see
all the EPEL updates even before they hit the mirrors.
