Honestly, we (EPEL) can try to help, but at this point, there's not much EPEL can do about it.  Make the the rhel maintainer aware of the issue(s), and then the ball is in their court.

Long term, rhel maintainers need to contact epel maintainers for future new rhel pkgs to try avoid anything like this in the future.  I just don't see any other way.
