There are experimental rpmdevtools 6.8 packages available to play with now, 
see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/466939#c7 for details.

When these are ready for the EL-5 build, how/when should I do the build?  Just 
do it when possible, and let the repo masters know that it shouldn't be 
pushed anywhere before EL 5.3 is out?  Or push it to testing even before 5.3 
is out, and to stable as simultaneously as possible with 5.3 goes GA?  Or 
should I just tag but hold building it until ...?
