Is there a standard procedure for doing this ?
As far as the EPEL-5 distribution is concerned, if you didn't push the
update through bodhi, it's fine don't worry that it's gone into Koji.
I don't know CVS well enough to know how to cleanly revert (I
generally use Subversion or Git)
I suppose you could untag the package in koji, and then just commit a
older version back to cvs.
Are you needing to update the older version? Or just don't want the
newer one to go out until you fix it up?
<pre wrap="">I've CCed in the EPEL devel list which almost certainly includes a
number of people more familiar with CVS than myself and can tell you
the two liner to revert back to the cppad-20080403-3_el5 tag.

If you expand a bit more on exactly what you built and what you want to
do we can give more detailed info.
