I'd fully agree to "pushing things to use the same systems (i.e. the
update system) and such are the way to go as that would also encourage
more people to package for and use EPEL (hopefully)."
But I tend to disagree with the other intention of the mail. EPEL is
designed to be a add-on repo for RHEL/CentOS that moves slow and
provides stable base you can rely on, just as RHEL/CentOS itself -- the
monthly pushes help here, as contributors might start to go wild like in
Fedora otherwise. Of course packages can be pushed quicker if there is a
good reason to.
