I know that the comment was not directed at me.
But never the less, I fear that my comment was misunderstood.

By reporting EPEL bugs against RedHat I didn't mean to imply that RedHat
is the master of EPEL - I just wanted to make sure that EPEL bugs don't
end up in CentOS' bug pool. Nothing else.

Bad wording on my side, I guess.
