Exactly (and that's why I brought the topic up).

+1 -- we also in the future try to keep the broken deps even in testing
to a minimum. E.g. something like "if there is a package in testing that
has broken deps for more then 7 days it's going to be removed."
So we're doing two runs against EPEL-5 and EPEL-4
EPEL5-testing: Merges RHEL5, EPEL-5, EPEL-5-Testing
EPEL5: Merges RHEL5, EPEL-5
EPEL4-testing: Merges RHEL4, EPEL-4, EPEL-4-Testing
EPEL4: Merges RHEL4, EPEL-4
That seem sane to everyone?
Yes -- I think that's a must-have.
BTW, how often do they run? Once a week iirc? Would it be much work to
let cron them at least twice a week?
