Seems you read something totally different into it then I do. Anyway,
the stuff got borked over time. I added the below to the FAQ and removed
the other stuff.

=== Should I take old or up2date software as a base for EPEL4? ===

The packages from Fedora Core and Extras 3 are a good staring base for
EPEL 4. The packages from Fedora Extras 3 were even rebuild for EL4
already and shipped by and external repo -- consider to look there for
additional fixes before building your package for EPEL4.
