Default EPEL 6 Packages Updating RHEL 6 Packages

Hi,

now that EPEL 6 is soon to be elevated from Beta to release status, I
ran few comparisons with repoquery between current EPEL 6 repo and RHEL
6 workstation / server / optional / supplementary / updates repos and
found out that there seems to be few packages in EPEL which would update
RHEL 6 packages without repository priorities.

The offending packages are listed below, copy/pasted from diff output,
EPEL packages prefixed with -, RHEL packages with +:

-perl-DateTime-0.5300-4.el6
+perl-DateTime-0.5300-1.el6

-perl-Test-MockObject-1.09-6.1.el6
+perl-Test-MockObject-1.09-3.1.el6

-python-turbokid-1.0.5-3.el6
+python-turbokid-1.0.4-4.1.el6

Is there some specific reason for these version mismatches or is just
the matter of fact that they seem to have appeared in EPEL earlier than
in RHEL (according to package timestamps)? Would you like me to report
these individually in Bugzilla or could these be acted upon based on
this email?

Thanks,

It appears that if they were released, then we would be breaking our
don't upgrade redhat packages directive.

My guess is that redhat decided to pick up the package that was
previously only in epel, but may have chosen to go for an older stable
version, rather than the most recent, or did not keep updating / let the
epel packager know the package was added to epel.

Making the bugzilla report (epel) would be good, because it triggers an
email to the packager, who might otherwise not know.

ok, I've filed the following bugs against each of the offending package:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=669320
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=669321
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=669322

Cheers,
