Alan, I'm not trying to provoke you at all; I'm sorry if it came
across that way.  I'm trying to move this conversation along so that
we can figure out the next action -- even if that next action turns
out to be "do nothing".

That was me paraphrasing KB's initial post.  All words are my own.
That's the discussion I thought we were having here, am I mistaken?

My question to you about allowing other repos was intended to see if
your negative response around EPEL was simply a judgement on EPEL, or
if you are saying it's not CentOS' place to include any repo
files/packages for 3rd party repos.
