Ticket #327 (closed enhancement: fixed)
EL-updates from RHN should be in the buildroots for EPEL builds

(this ticket is opened as discussed in this weeks EPEL-meeting https://www.redhat.com/archives/epel-devel-list/2008-January/msg00036.html )
The EPEL builders currently use the latest RHEL releases 4 and 5; but some packagers need to have the updates released by RH via RHN available in the buildroot as well for proper function.
Getting the updates from RHN into a repo (via reposync from yum-utils maybe?), running createrepo over them and adding that repo to the builders mock configs should do the trick.
