Unlike in 'official' RHEL, I'd think the emphasis here is
just on best
effort for stability. As long as we're cautious I think it will be fine.
Anything we do should be very well documented, along the lines of:
"API and ABI stability for packages in EPEL is NOT guaranteed. If you are
an ISV, you should not base your software on these packages, or, if you do,
be prepared to ship your own version."
