This bug seems unnecessary. AFAIK all it takes to create a branch for a
package is a willing maintainer who's already a packager, in this case 
you,  to make a SCM request for it in the package review request

Make sure to list yourself as a "owner" of the new branch.

Its perfectly understandable for a primary POC of a package on the 
Fedora branches to not want to deal with the EPEL packaging.
