How about making that part of EPEL guidelines? If an ISV wants to
point to EPEL for resources for his app, then he *needs* to sign up as
a comaintainer with at least the responsibilities on testing his app
against the lastest EPEL every now and then.

There are similar ISV guidelines for RHEL updates, we could pick them
up, especially the timeline parts of them, and adjust them for EPEL.
