I'd like to ask the Steering committee to consider enhancing existing 
policy documents, namely,
to explictly mention the case where packages migrate from epel -> rhel.

Case in point here is a mild contention with what to do with

considered a blocker to removing this from epel, ie,

My current opinion is that these are orthogonal issues, but I'm curious
