Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux

Karsten Wade is just announced the availability of Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) by the Fedora Project.

If you use enterprise-class Linux (EL) distributions derived from
Fedora, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS, we have something
very exciting for you.

Ever find yourself rebuilding one of the high-quality Fedora packages
for your EL version because it didn’t ship with the EL distro?

Friends, there is a new way. May we introduce …

Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL)

EPEL is a community of package maintainers working from inside of
Fedora. Many are the same people who maintain the Fedora version. Yet,
there room for new packages and contributors. Currently, around 1000
packages are available, and we’ve been growing at the rate of several
dozen packages every week.
