mock + chroot? Or install CentOS in a VM?
Indeed mock and chroot may be very usefull for testing package
functionnality and build, but it is not exactly what I am looking for.
As a side note I cannot find a mock config for centos to be used
for mock builds of epel, looking through the wiki (although they are
reference to such a thing existing, for example
and I remember seeing a reference to those files on a list).

It is really the same than:

I've never used rpmfind, but if it can serve you this information for
Fedora it might be able to serve it for CentOS as well (which "aims to
be 100% binary compatible").
Ok, this clarifies things a lot. I hadn't understood that Centos was
interchangeable for RHEL for EPEL.
