[CentOS-devel] Overlap between EPEL and CentOS ( non upstream pkgs )

We are going to need to find a way to address content in CentOS ( or
well, content in EPEL ) where there are packages in centos that didnt
come from rhel but are going to overlap with whats in EPEL.

Technically, this is a centos.org issue since EPEL's mandate requires
them to not overlap with RHEL[1]. But with stuff going into
CentOS-Extras/ and more content coming onboard from SIG's - and even
from Core SIG - how are we going to address the overlap / flapping
potential with EPEL ?

I am going to be pulling in cloud-init with a couple of deps, need to
have these in the centos.org repos to do cloud instance builds.

[1]: I am not sure if EPEL cant overlap with base RHEL or with variants
and layered products ?
