True. EPEL repository media coverage has not been bad but by no means large.
Linux electrons assumed it was a Red Hat effort since you send the mail
and so did Distrowatch which used it as a reference in
Linux.com had a article with extensive references to the EPEL FAQ
We have had some discussions in fedora marketing list and with some
other product management folks about how it relates to RHEL. Short
outlook is supportive but wait and watch for more input.
If there are no announcements to RHEL announce lists being send out
someone should atleast do it informally in the user lists.
