You are blaming the wrong people. GSS is just support people. They don't
involve themselves with maintaining packages or QA.
Again, you only point out the wrong, not the right. Whoever it is or
whatever the department is called, it's @redhat.com. GSS has the most
benefit from getting it right, because they answer the phone when a
customer is confused having packages from EPEL that are in RHEL. I think
the message I wanted to send out was clear enough on it's own,
regardless of getting all the acronyms and departments right.
