Even though any proven packager could do the change, that bug does not
fall in the items listed in the proven packager policy [1]. You haven't
listed any problems with the current package, you're just requesting a
version upgrade.

Version upgrades should be performed by the package maintainer. This
especially holds in EPEL, which should be a slowly moving distribution.
