I would like to remind EPEL package maintainers to review the
page on the wiki. 

In particular, your package MUST spend at least 2 weeks in testing
before being pushed to stable. After those two weeks you can decide to
request stable or let the update wait until it gets sufficent karma in
bodhi before pushing. 

Please do not try and push your packages directly to stable unless they
are security updates or critical bug fixes. This is ENFORCED by epel
rel-eng/signers who will change your request to testing unless your
update meets the criteria for pushing to stable.
