I am not really interested in the package statistics, so no.

But I am interested in an easy access to the Meetbot logs. Is this the
meetbot site you are talking about: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/ ?

AFAICS there is no easy way to get all EPEL meetbot summaries from
there. Or in other words, the only way seems to be to go through all
summaries from all groups.

Ok, this would not cause any issues afaics.

I would have fixed it, if was something I do already know how to fix it.
I did not assume that it should be just removed.

I just looked at it and found two issues:
I guess this is not used anymore? Or is it somehow managed using
| feel free to add your nick to the list of nicks in the "meeting ping"

Also the topic changes are done using "/topic" instead of "#topic". I
never used meetbot, so maybe it matters, maybe it does not:
| /topic EPEL SIG Meeting | Status Reports | Revive them?

There is also a link to this page:
I guess it can be moved to the archive namespace and requested for
deletion? Or even all pages in
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:EPELTasksOpen except for
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/Tasks/NextTestingStableMove unless
this is documented somewhere else.

If I know that something is wrong and I know what is right instead, I
happily fix this in the wiki. But if I do not know the details, I
typically do not edit it to avoid making it worse. IMHO it would be nice
to have some easy way to create patches for the wiki, send them to
somebody that has the knowledge, so that he can just verify the changes
and apply them. Then the work can still be shared, but this is more
dreaming then reality.
