Does anyone have experience with running RHEL on IBM mainframe? In
particular, I'm curious about what implications this has for the linux
system administration part of it, such as these:

   - Whick package repositories are available?
   - Are there any EPEL-like repos for zLinux?
   - Can we use our Red Hat Satellite Server to manage packages for zLinux?
   - Are there many tweak and issues I need to be aware of?

We currently have quite a few RHEL servers based on x86 hardware, so I'm
basically interested in what kind of changes/adjustments I must implement
to add IBM mainframe to our list of hardware platforms. Please let me know
if there are other mailing lists that are more suitable for this topic.
