Hmm.  It says in the FAQ that EPEL 'encourages' compatibility, and to
file a bug in bugzilla.  Are you saying that there are a lot of 'deaf
ears' out there?

Specifically, if I solve the problem, how do I feed back the fixes?
This list? fedora-devel? Bugzilla?

I'm basically selfish, and I'm not looking to change the world, just my
part.
