I can't find you in the packagers' database. To work with packages in
EPEL, you'd need to become a Fedora packager first.

epel-devel-list mailing list

I'll be sure to sign up for that group, I have a Fedora account but the group's page didn't have a link to apply for the fedora packagers.

While I work on that I'm also looking at building packages using Mock, but am having a lot of trouble getting it to work.  I've found a few docs on mock on the Fedora wiki, but not much else.  Right now I'm trying to test packages I've made on CentOS 6, but am getting this...maybe if someone could point me in the direction of additional information on Mock or where to get support that would be great.

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
