The problem is not about wasting some time upgrading, even if you kindly
provide online support :-) It's about silently breaking a previously
working setup. The EPEL policy says update without a transparent upgrade
path should be avoided by all means and that security fixes should
preferably be backported. Granted, this is not always possible, but then,
the incompatible update should at least be advertised on the epel-announce
list, possibly with hints on how to ease the transition. At least, that's
my understanding of the policy.

Regards,
Xavier
