I don't think anything was decided upon along those lines you were 
asking for. Tim wrote up a draft for a high level agreement and I made 
some changes he seemed to be unhappy with.

You can find the original draft in a previous revision. I haven't had 
time to followup through FESCo or other repository maintainers yet 
though Rex Dieter did add a acknowledgment. If they find this or the 
previous draft useful, we can push through this. If other repository 
maintainers are watching the discussions, do provide some feedback.

We generally avoid pointing to third party repositories to avoid any 
potential legal risks. EPEL FAQ mentions (in a positive 
way) since it is a simple rebuild of Fedora Extras and would only 
contain patent encumbered Free and open source software just like Fedora.
