Looked at this and it looks like old software which isn't backwards compatible or long term supported.
EPEL gfal2-plugin-xrootd 0.3 for EL5 & EL6 ?

We would like to use a version of gfal2-plugin-xrootd built against xrootd 4 for EL5 and EL6. Does anyone know if there are plans to build and release version 0.3 (or 0.3.pre1) for EL5 & EL6?
(The version available in EL7 is built against xrootd 4, but EL5 & EL6 are built against xrootd 3.)
It looks like the current version available in EPEL for EL5 & EL6 is 0.2.2-2:
from May 2013. Since this version was built against xrootd 3, we're not able to install it along with xrootd 4. Also, attempting to rebuild this version (0.2.2-2) fails both against the latest version of gfal2 and against xrootd 4.
But I see that there is a newer version 0.3.pre1-2 available for EL7:
It looks like this version addresses the build issues and we can rebuild it in EL5 & EL6 against the latest gfal2 and xrootd 4.
I'm wondering if there are plans for EPEL to update to & release the new version of gfal2-plugin-xrootd in EL5 & EL6 also (so we can get it directly from EPEL). And if not, is this something EPEL would consider?
