In this entire thread, you have done NO work beyond long long emails.
You haven't come up with a list of packages that would be impacted,
you haven't offered to come up with the changes to the build system
you would need to make the extra channels. You support no packages in
EPEL. You have attended no meetings.

And somehow you are surprised that no one "listens" and the people who
have done any or all of the above have an opinion different than
yours. Maybe banging your head will enlighten you that your method of
40+ lines emails and multiple responses is not working.
