This was brought up in #EPEL earlier today and I'd like to hear further 
discussion from people on the list.

On the one hand.  EPEL has to get installed and its not hard for people 
to install both the EPEL and testing repo at the same time.  Some might 
argue that it discourages new contributors and new packages from being 

By pushing new packages, we are risking dep solving issues so our 
scripts would have to be changed (yet again).  Anyway, I'm right on the 
line with this one (because I'm happy to enable the testing repo)

What do you the rest of you think?
