For EPEL's process, see their web site (which also contains a
procedure for getting package updates created and finding the
maintainer of a package that you are interested in):

In the case of graphite-web, that data is here:

The package has been approved for inclusion in EPEL 7 but was not yet
built/released and is not in testing. (as per guidelines minimum of 2
weeks in testing prior to release)

The only person who can give you their plans for a specific package is
the point of contact package administrator, jsteffan in this case.
Typically these things go faster if someone takes the initiative in
testing an updated .spec and package, sending the SRPM to the
maintainer instead of a request for them to drop what they are doing
to start a project for your needs.

If you are prioritizing "stability" CentOS 7 seems like a dubious
choice to begin with though.
