In my opinion this is bad advice, as keeping the repo disabled (but
still obtaining packages from it occasionally) will mean you never
automatically receive updates to packages you've installed from it.

Instead, I recommend that you edit /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo and add
the line "exclude=collectd*" under the "[epel]" heading. I've only ever
seen issues with the collectd packages from EPEL and no others.

If you want to be a bit stricter you can instead only
"include=<packages>" the packages that you are specifically interested
in. In my case that's too many packages to be practical.
