You might have guest from the amount of packages listed in the report:
a lot of packages were moved from testing/5/ to the proper epel5 repos.
I excluded some:

- all those packages that have broken deps (I hope nothing slipped
through; does anybody want to recheck?)

- all those packages that entered EPEL for the first time in the past days

- yum-cron, for now, in the hope to find a way that makes both EPEL and
CentOS happy

If anybody wonders how it did it here is how:

* download all packages for i386 locally

* move all the new stuff and yum-cron away

* run repoclosure

* move everything with broken deps away

* run repoclosure again

* move some now broken deps away

* repo was sane then according to repoclosure

Then I took the list of SRPMs from the packages and feed that to the
"ToStable" script from the EPEL push scripts.

Not perfect, but worked afaics.
