Sorry, we should have spelled that out in the summary. 

EPEL packages must never conflict with packages in RHEL-AP. 
EPEL packages can conflict with packages in other RHEL channels. 
EPEL maintainers should be open to communication from RHEL maintainers
and try and accommodate them by not shipping specific packages, or by
adjusting the package in EPEL to better handle a conflicting package in
a channel on a case by case basis. 

At least I think thats what we all agreed to? 
Comments/clarifications/etc?

We need to word this up nicer, update the wiki, and send an email to
the announce list. Anyone want to help with any of those parts?
