Well, adding so EPEL directly into cbs would then mean that all
packages/repositories from cbs would have a hard require on epel too
.. not something that target users would probably want (for packages
conflicting/updating epel packages)

What I'd be in favor of (short-term) would be more or less something
like this : a cbs-epel target and rebuild (and keep in sync) epel
packages in that target.
Then, SIGs users/maintainers can just "tag" the builds already there
(and that they'd like to see landing in their SIG repo) : mash will
then generate correct repositories with repo closure without a hard
dep on epel itself.

That's just a "wild" idea (after a Rochefort beer ...), but I'd like
to think a little bit more about that (and after having discussed with
some people about the technical aspects)
