Hello, apologies if this is an inappropriate venue, but I'm new
and trying to understand the release cycle for packages. I see in Fedora
that Chromium 62 and 63 have been released for awhile. But EPEL is still at
61. What is the best way to check in on the release schedule, or contribute
some effort towards releasing a new effort?

Each version of Chromium takes a lot of work to get working with even
Fedora. The source code has to be gone through to see what items are
embedded and need to be removed, which items need to be added to
Fedora elsewhere, and what the licenses for each of those versions is
done. Then it needs to be seen if it even compiles/runs against
Fedora. After that it needs to be done again against EPEL.
The owner of the package is Tom Callaway who has been doing the
lionshare of this work. I would contact him to see what his plans are
with the package and if he needs help or if most of the problem is due
to some new braincluck that the upstream has added to the code to make
it only work against their own desktops.
