The CentOS project is pleased to announce that the epel-release package is now included in the CentOS Extras repositories for all current versions of CentOS.
In order to use packages from the EPEL repository, users may ‘yum install epel-release’
NOTE: This does not change the existing support structure for either EPEL or CentOS. If you encounter a bug with a package from EPEL, please file the bug with EPEL. CentOS will continue to provide best effort support for distribution packages.
