Why are these packages going into EPEL? These seem to be clear
violations of the EPEL "Guidelines and Policies":

"EPEL packages should only enhance and never disturb the Enterprise
Linux distributions they were build for. Thus packages from EPEL should
never replace packages from the target base distribution - including
those on the base distribution as well as layered products;"
