Hello folks,

In the planning of next Community build services, a new question came up.

In the past we never allowed EPEL repositories to be used as external 
repositories for SIGs. Doing so, would allow to build against EPEL 
packages and not duplicate the work for maintainers in EPEL/SIGs.

However it would mean also building against a moving target which can be 
difficult if EPEL policies are the same as today.

As EPEL 8 is also in the making it would be good to hear what SIGs think 
about this specific issue.

Let us know !
