Has something changed in the EPEL rules that would now allow us to ship
packages that conflict with the packages in base RHEL or a RHEL product
like RHGS (GlusterFS) or RHCS (Ceph)?

repos, e.g. gluster-5, gluster-6, and gluster-7. (I want to call those
Streams, but I think Streams is used for something different.)
