Thanks for your detailed and helpful feedback. I propose this here for
discussion. So if you have a technical solution that could work, but
does not confirm to the points of the proposal? Then please show or
explain it, that we can consider adjusting the proposal before it's
being voted upon. That why I posted it for discussion.

Ohh, sorry, I nearly forgot: there is a technical solution that could
work. I outlined it in

In short: add a %{?repotag} to the end of release in all EPEL spec
files, set that in the EPEL builders (not in the Fedora ones) to ".epel"
and the solution is there. We could start with it tomorrow -- but we
need the Fedora Packaging Committee to agree first, as that's
responsible for stuff like this in Fedora.
