See here:


Neither epel nor nux should overwrite packages in the base distro. Nux 
generally requires epel as they build against packages in epel rather 
than reinventing that particular wheel. Both repos work well together 
and generally don't cause issues with el7 in my experience.

The only issue I've had with epel is that they can be slow to remove 
packages from their repo once they appear in the core distro. It is also 
frustrating that they do not use a dist tag to easily identify packages 
from epel.
