To search the epel-devel list i usually use
' epel-devel' in my google search string.

Historically the primary way I have looked into the state of moving an
existing package forward is to contact the package owners.  Sometimes
if they can't push a newer package into stable they host it in their
private space and can tell you about it.

I also tend to check out Fedora's Koji to see what is being built in
Fedora, since typically it can be used with Fedora with a minimal
amount of work.

And the work on the package was Volker not me, but thanks :)
