To be fair it was only broken because you kept it broken; you could have
backed out the CR updates and waited for the point release to go GA and
be on ABI parity with EPEL.

I would be careful of expectations around that partial EPEL rebuild;
it's not complete and some of the builds are quite dated.

They're really not good for anything,

when you push them down a flight of stairs.
