There's a lot of "talk" in those FAQs, which doesn't match reality.
I'd favour a more honest/self-critical view of what EPEL is able to
deliver today … as opposed to what it could deliver if it had enough
volunteers to contribute.
Yeah, it would be great to re-do/re-work the wiki pages.
Would someone be willing to step up to do that?

At present, you could not even tell _how_ "to deal with these issues".
I've found only one. How many others are there? (e.g. run-time issues)
One thing for sure, it wouldn't be much fun to have one group bring
a package into EPEL and see how they drop the ball long before dist
EOL. And then point at the FAQ and hope for another person (or group)
to drag the package out of the mud.
Bodhi doesn't know about any substantial testing of EPEL updates:
Hopefully we can get that to change.
fedora-easy-karma now works in epel5 at least. (After several rounds of
bug fixing from Till. Thanks!).
