He's listed as owner for perl-Test-Taint and perl-Params-Validate in
EPEL-4.  I was unable to track down the request for the EPEL branches in
bugzilla (they aren't on the review request) but I do see that rmyers is
the owner of the EL-5 branches.  Perhaps he wants the EL-4 branches as well?

This is actually because of how bugzilla works combined with the way we
create that set of acls.  For Fedora, the devel owner is used to
determine who to use as owner in bugzilla.  For EPEL, the EL-5 owner is
used.

Patrice might want to reply to this but I think your point is well made.
