I'll try to take as many as I can.  It happens that I will have lots of
free time over the next month or so.  Most of the hard part has already
been done, so it should not be too hard except where is noted below.

I'm already testing EPEL builds on RHEL6 internally.

I'll sync with you off list tomorrow or Monday if that is OK with you

Let's face it, there's no Hollow Earth, no robots, and
no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense.  I tried it.  Only tinfoil works.
