In the case of EPEL5, Pacemaker was built against 1.2.7 which is in
the clusterlabs repo.
Is there a specific problem that requires you to have 1.2.8?

As I explained above, anything even remotely recent from corosync (or
the other projects) is usually sufficient, this includes corosync
I'm not aiming to replace the entire distribution, if you need higher
frequency updates perhaps its something you should bring up with the
EPEL maintainers.
