Here the announcement:
Hi All,

Yesterday we opened up epel7 for people to request branches and
contribute to there is a FAQ[1]. The things to note at this point in
time. epel7 is working like rawhide with daily automated composes, we
will endevour to sign all packages but as with any disjointed process
there could be packages missed. The git branch, tagging in koji and
packagedb all use epel7, to support this we needed a minor change to
fedpkg you will need to make sure you have fedpkg-1.15-1 installed, its
currently in updates-testing for fedora 19 and el6 and was not
backported to fedora 18.

you can request your package be branched for epel by filling in the
table at the request page[2]. The list will be processed regularly you
will get emails from packagedb when it is done, additionally you can
also use bugzilla but thats a little more tedious and results in extra
bugzilla noise. closer to going stable we will shut off request via the

To see if a package you are interesting in maintaing the full list of
package names in the public beta is also in the wiki[3].

Thanks to everyone that helps with epel7
