I have rebuilt the following packages by using those included in
CentOS 4.5 and prepending a '0' to the release tag (and in some
cases, adding a dist tag):
For the yum package I also made a change to the yum.conf file which
gets installed so that it looks at redhat-release instead of centos-
release. CentOS users should not be installing these packages due to
the lower release number, so this should work nicely to allow RHEL 4
users to install yum if needed.

with the Fedora maintainers to get these into EPEL. If the
maintainers don't want to maintain the package in EPEL, I am willing
to co-maintain them in EPEL (or have someone else do it if anyone's
