Hmmm...  Licensing.

The COPYING file included is the GPLv3, but the source clearly states that:

# mysqlreport makes an easy-to-read report of important MySQL status values.
# Copyright 2006-2008 Daniel Nichter
# This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
# modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License

We could certainly choose to redistribute this under the terms of the GPLv3+,
as the plain text of the license grant inside the source permit this.  I don't
have a problem with this if you're thinking the spec license tag should match
the included COPYING file.

And, EPEL packages of this would be extremely useful, I agree.  No problem with
co-maintaintership either :)
