Actually I'm interested in opnions from everyone; but I'm especially
interested in opnions from Fedora/EPEL contributos.

And others that don't see a sense or benefit in repotags  (or even think
they do harm) have expressed their opinion as well.

No, more meaning: Find a technical and political solution that is
acceptable for EPEL SIG and the Fedora Packaging Committee (and FESCo,
if it wants to ).

And let me warn you: there seems to be a opposition against repotags on
that way from what I can see, so this process might take weeks and
likely lots of discussions and mails. There are high chances to get
frustrated and burned out on the way afaics.

Actually realizing what got decided in the end is probably easy.
