Well, I was curious and took a closer look. Actually I compared 5Server
+ EPEL against Fedora 8 and not FE6, which makes EPEL even look worse.
When looking at the source rpms I get this result (rough estimate which
may contain a few packages detected wrongly, but should be good enough):

$ wc -l rhel epel fedora8
 1085 rhel
  819 epel
 4803 fedora8

I ran "grep -v" over it and uploaded the list of packages that are in
Fedora but not in EPEL to:

2986 packages ;-)

Some of them would be nice to have. Just took a quick look at saw for

abiword, airsnort, alpine, amarok, audacious, bluefish, [...],
ipw*-firmware, [...], 527 different packages starting with perl, 69
starting with python,  [...], xfce*,  [...]

Note that a part of those 2986 packages are not interesting for EPEL;
those 31 hunspell dictionaries for example.
