Yeah, I think I understand what you are looking for, but I'm not sure
EPEL is a good match.
Perhaps something like http://repos.fedorapeople.org/
You want something like a 'preview' or early adopters repo so folks can
get and test early before there are official packages right?
The other problem is that 389-ds-base can't build on EL6 yet -
389-ds-base now uses openldap - mozldap has been dropped from RHEL6 -
openldap in RHEL 6.0 does not use NSS for crypto, nor does it provide an
LDIF API (as does openldap in Fedora 14 and later, and RHEL 6.1 and later).
I'll look into
