Keep in mind the release of 7.2 has happened in the world of RHEL.

This has updated a lot of components and included some that weren't there

EPEL tracks RHEL not CentOS, so there is always some uncertainty during
these times.

This is one of the reasons it's worth spending some time setting up local
mirrors so that they are kept stable during these transitions.

There's a lot of packages in epel-testing right now and now will probably
still have to be rebuilt yet. Please file bugs if epel-testing does not
already have a working package so maintainers can get notification and work
on them.

Remember that EPEL policy is packages at least two weeks in testing so
there's still some time before many can be pushed stable - and testers are
always welcome!
