On RHEL mailing lists it has been suggested that the only way to
close the loop for organizational support is a Technical Account Manager
(TAM). Perhaps if Red Hat wanted to show support for the EPEL effort
they could assign a TAM to at least read the mailing list. This would be
a person at Red Hat who has full access to inside information and so
could at least say "hey, I'd hold off on that since it will be in 5.5" or maybe
answer direct questions off-list.
