That's far from a good reason to not fix it nevertheless. Afterall, part
of the development includes making sure the page templates generate valid
xhtml in the target environment.

In the past certain things like that package were installed. We now have
a policy that only officially released packages can be used on
infrastructure. the correct place to get what you want is EPEL im more
than happy to install anything you need that is in RHEL or EPEL. But will
not install something from outside those two sources.
With publishing packages in EPEL comes the requirement to maintain them in
EPEL many years with less or no opportunity to upgrade to a new API as
time passes by. I'm not willing to do that.
Other requirements, like createrepo-0.4.8 and its dependencies, have been
installed in violation of that "policy".
