Re: EPEL, as much as I love to have lots of good Fedora stuff in those
repos, is there a specific call for mwlib to work there?  I thought
our use of mwlib was going to be entirely client-side.  Are there any
plans to use, or situations where we might need, mwlib to call from a
server app?

Sorry if I'm not remembering something obvious, too much juggling for
one brain. ;-)
