Send a note to the epel-announce list detailing the changes, wait
another week or two, then push to stable.

I'd check with Lubomir and/or Sven, but personally, I wouldn't see a
problem with announcing the change and updating in EPEL5 as well.

I can only assume that most people generally use the scripts
interactively and know enough about what they're doing to cope with
whatever obscure option has vanished or changed. Or at least monitor
them if used in automation.
