Just for the record, the original idea was the following:

1. update Tx package from 0.7.4 to 0.9.x in order to update t.fp.o instance.
2. update t.fp.o instance to 0.9.x
3. once we have a Tx 0.9.x version successfully running on t.fp.o,
package the new 1.x series.
4. update t.fp.o instance to 1.x series.

Tx 0.9.1 was packaged successfully and tested to work fine at [1], a
staging instance which is still up and running.

The workflow has got stuck in step 2.

If you need it, I may release ownership for EPEL packages too.

kind regards
