As long as EPEL doesn't fix its broken policy, it's unlikely to happen.
1. EPEL doesn't respect any EL7 packaging standard
2. Updates policy is used to block major version update even when it makes sense
-> Impossible to maintain OpenStack clients in that context.
3. While some maintainers don't even respect the said updates policy
to push broken updates

I'd rather not speak about EPEL anymore.
