A small addition here; RHEL does so by releasing a minor update to the
entire operating system (5.2) - so everyone knows to look for changes
like these. Is this something EPEL can do as well?
EPEL 5.2/nethack-4.0 (for the right reasons)
Just a thought.
To be honest, I think it would be too much effort to keep separate
branches of EPEL for each point release just for the few cases where
there is a legitimate reason to update a package.
If a user doesn't want to upgrade to a point release, the user can add
nethack to their excludes for automatic updates.
