Just a note: A lot of things IMHO can be done on the list. It's just 
each "thing" needs someone to drive it forward. But that's the same on 
IRC as well. ;-)

In the interest of contributers, users and EPEL in general: I'd much 
prefer if somebody would look at each of the problems and find a 
individual solution for each of the problems. From looking at the broken 
deps it seems to me that at least some of them are quite easy to fix. 
Some others otoh might be quite hard to fix, so removing them really 
might be the better solution for now.

And no, sorry, I'm not volunteering to do this. I'm quite busy with RPM 
Fusion stuff right now :-/
