Wouldn't really help at this point. For EPEL to use dist-git, koji
would have to grow the ability to build from git, and use fedpkg to do
some of the work. Our repo admins would have to learn about git to make
the EPEL branches, and then getting master merged back in once we do the
rest of the branches would be awkward. I'd rather move whole hog when
we are ready to move anything.
Ok no problem. If sometime in the future a test set needs to be done,
let us know.

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp. Or what's a heaven for?
