The mere fact that Stephen asked here is the proof that EPEL DOES care 
about other repos. I also would like to point to Kevin's message ( 
https://www.redhat.com/archives/epel-devel-list/2010-August/msg00158.html ) 
which also proves that EPEL does try to avoid creating interoperability 
problems [*]
Please, let's focus on technical issues and not restart an useless flame 
war.


[*] even if (sadly) other maintainers do not care about anything beyond 
fedora
