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 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.
