Looks like this was done without asking the respective package owners whether 
they're interested in maintaining those packages in EPEL.  I know I wasn't 
asked, yet rpmlint and rpmdevtools were imported by someone else but assigned 
to me.  Please don't do that - in worst cases that may mean the packages are 
effectively unmaintained as the reports go to people who have no plans to do 
anything about them.

There were also some "branched for infrastructure" commits lately; were the 
newly added EPEL owners asked in those cases?

As a side note, I most likely will be interested in maintaining some EPEL5 
packages later, but probably not EPEL4.
