So, on a RHEL6 beta1 machine, I installed the epel-release-6-1.noarch package, and then tried installing stapitrace -- unsuccessfully.  I looked at http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/beta/6/ppc64/, and I don't see it there either.  Did I miss a step?

Yes; it's branched in CVS but not yet tagged and built. As the 
maintainer, it's up to you to do that - some packages need tweaks before 
this is done, though I don't think that'll be the case here.
