May i ask what exactly you mean with "if it exists"?

Fedpkg lists a remote "origin/f12" branch for all of my packages, so in that 
sense they exist in F-12, but the el6 branches I got when my package change 
requests were processed all started out with the same content as the master 

In this case I would have synchronized them with Rawhide anyway, and then 
adapted them as necessary from there, so I'm not complaining, but I notice a 
discrepancy between what I saw and what you're saying.

When the time comes for EPEL 7 I will probably prefer that the packages are 
branched from the most closely matching Fedora release (as Kevin says they 
will probably be).
