Is there a guarantee that a package is being actively maintained if it 
is in the EPEL repository? I checked the FAQ and can't pin down what 
they do in those instances.
I only say, as I have stated off-list, the reason I've not been using a 
repo for some php packages is that I've found that they were sometimes 
lagging behind with the current stable version, and that security issues 
existed that had not been patched by the repo in question.
