Sure, I'm putting proposed packages here:

As you can see, I've been forking them from Fedora 13 / Rawhide so
that we have the latest possible code.  This makes sense from the
point of view of RHEL 5.6 since they are new packages, maybe not so
much from the POV of EPEL.  However in the case of these packages I
can't see any backwards compatibility or ABI issues.
