I am not sure why maven2 part peaked your interest with regards to EPEL.
Maven 2 is not present there at all. There is in fact very little Java
world in EPEL and if someone wants to change that: Great! But heed my
warning: Unless you are one-man-packaging-army, you'll end up crazy old
man/woman before packaging anything useful.

As far as I am concerned: EPEL follows Fedora guidelines that existed at
the time when RHEL was branched off Fedora. So it might make sense to
freeze them in some state somewhere for posterity I guess, but I
wouldn't touch them (much)
