there is not an easy way to provide a permanent link.
<incredulous>Really!?</incredulous> I have seen *lots* of projects
provide a link in their list of download files to
project_name.latest.tar.gz which is a symlink to the latest version of
the tar ball. Couldn't a script be added somewhere which basically
(mind the wrap)
ln -sf `ls -tr /path/to/rpms/epel-release-*.noarch .rpm|
tail -1` /path/to/epel-release-latest.noarch.rpm
That seems trivial.
