Yeah I've seen that information.  Correct me if I am wrong, but it looks like there is still a good deal of work to be done to bring the EPEL-6 repo up to the level of completeness that EPEL-5 is at. 

What I don't want to do is rebuild this only to find myself still needing Fedora-12 repos to get all of my applications back up and running.  I think I'd feel comfortable doing this once you guys thought you were at (let's put a precise number on a fuzzy guess) 90% completeness.  Do you feel like you are that far along or do you still feel like there are some significant gaps in packages that need to be brought over?

Thanks for your help,
Jason Tholstrup

go here:

and then it will link you to:

pick your arch and you're on the way.

in short - there are a bunch of pkgs already ready for rhel6.
