Nah, while I was a James Bond fan in my early youth, I'm not a fan of
repo wars. "Let live" was all right, there will not be a war, but
neither any one-sided fixing army on this.

Looking at your requests on this you should realize that repotags are
what you are really asking for the minimum level, which is what epel
nuked to ashes. So the discussion should probably move away from this
list to the epel list. And since it's a dead topic there as well you
will not really get very far.
