I sent a mail about how to havev some infos about RHEL packages some
time ago and didn't received any response, so (even though it is not
completly obvious that it is in EPEL role), I add it here. Maybe it is
relevant for EPEL anyway, if the silence reflects an issue in EPEL/RHEL

I am checking which package I'd like to put in EPEL and it appears that
some informations are lacking, that I can find easily with rpmfind (for
example), but I cannot for RHEL. Here is a list of things I would like 
to do, from a non Centos/RHEL box, or from another Centos/RHEL version, 
of course. Do you have guidance on how to do it? Keep in mind that I would
like something easy, (like what rpmfind provides, for example) not something 
complicated (like download all the srpms and work out from the spec

* find whether a package is in RHEL or not
* find whether a file is in RHEL or not, and in which package
* find whether a provides is in RHEL or not, and provided by which
* find the list of files and provides of a package in RHEL

I'd like to add that, if there is to be a cooperation with other repos,
it would be nice to have a place in the wiki for other repo representant
to put this information (and also more information, like web site,
contact people, download link, version control system link if any).
