I would've expected anything that exists in epel6 and doesn't exist in
rhel7 to get an epel7 branch. It seems a bit ludicrous doing it manually
- do I have to go through all the deps of any package I want to build
for epel7 and figure this out manually and file branch requests for each
package that isn't in rhel7? yeesh.
