I understand that the 389 directory server stack for EPEL6 hasn't been
pushed due to the anticipation that 389 will be included in RHEL 6.1.
However, i wonder if it would be possible to push the 389 stack to
EPEL6 with an EVR such that when 6.1 is released the packages are
upgraded from EPEL to the RHEL packages? The reason I ask is that
it'll be a while before 6.1 releases of centos and scientific linux
are released (given that rhel 6.1 is currently not released but in
beta), and it would be nice to have a working 389 stack.
Well, I suppose, but that sure does sound like a lot of work. ;) 

Since they don't conflict now, they could be added, but when 6.1 or
whatever comes out with them in it, we would need to mark them all
dead.package, block them, etc. 
I'm the 389 maintainer.  I don't mind doing the work to create some packages for EL6, but I don't want that work to be thrown away as soon as RHEL 6.1 is released.  I'd rather come up with some long term solution that will work on EL6, EL7, etc.
Any suggestions?  Note that certain solutions may be non-starters if the change to the package name or layout is too radical - changes that would make the docs obsolete or require massive changes, or make dependent packages such as freeipa or dogtag fail.
