Are there any downsides in enabling epel repository on a server machine or is it something every sysadmin does?


EPEL is reasonably safe and widely used due to its wide selection of useful packages and careful, enterprise grade quality control. It's virtually required for any EL machine, so much so that I deploy it in all my kickstarts/puppet configs proactively.
