How is that automated? :)

Sure, I can do that manually right now, but what makes you think I
would notice when there's a new update? Manually putting it on a
person is something I want to avoid. ;)

Perhaps we could use something from the fedmsg bus to detect when this
package is pushed to stable. Or run a cron job that lists the most
current one in the repo...

Another option, how do we just get epel-release into RHEL? Scientific ships with it in their core. It makes things so much nicer. I realize Red Hat doesn't want to support everything from EPEL, but having it easily available might be nice. I haven't used a RHEL system since 2007 without EPEL anyway ;)
