Why doesn't this exists yet ?
Most third party repository have some permanent URL.
Each time epel-release is updated to a new version, so much stuff is
broken (doc, scripts, ...)
Is it so hard to simply create a link ?
I agree it's been annoying on a few occassions ... but I always have a
version of epel-release in my own internal repo and just add my
internal repo with the repo command in the kickstart config and
include epel-release in the %packages section. Then I follow that up
with a yum upgrade (which pulls down newest from upstream epel), so I
rarely have to worry about this, if ever anymore ...
Anyway, I did this for fun just to show how it can be done
_externally_ by someone not in the Fedora org:
rpm -qip http://warm-scrubland-1864.herokuapp.com/epel-latest/6/x86_64/epel-release
rpm -qip http://warm-scrubland-1864.herokuapp.com/epel-latest/6/x86_64/fail2ban
