We are pleased to announce that Red Hat is establishing a small team
directly responsible for participating in EPEL activities. Their job
isn't to displace the EPEL community, but rather to support it
full-time. We expect many beneficial effects, among those better EPEL
readiness for a RHEL major release. The EPEL team will be part of the
wider Community Platform Engineering group, or CPE for short.
As a reminder, CPE is the Red Hat team combining IT and release
engineering from Fedora and CentOS.
Right now we are staffing up the team and expect to see us begin this
work from October 2021. Keep an eye on the EPEL mailing list and the
associated tracker as we begin this exciting journey with the EPEL
