announced for FOSDEM in Brussels on Feb 4-5th:

updates from the upstream stable branch:
- Pádraig has continued the work on EPEL6 and posted an update:
The current status is that I have nova and glance services
running and passing very basic tests. I'm using 2 packages not
yet in EPEL though.

should switch to MySQL by default:
