And excludes all those contributers and users that don't have a RHEL
license, as the resulting bits might lead to broken deps when one runs
"yum update" on a CentOS machine right now (¹) with EPEL which depends
on a lib that is shipped in the newly released RHEL update. Seems that's
the case in the mail that started this thread.

That would be totally unacceptable IMHO.


(¹) -- e.g. before CentOS 5.1 is available
