I suspect the user in question had installed the RDO release RPM and was following the manual installation path, we probably need a note somewhere to highlight that EPEL is assumed/required in this case?

Though a little less flexible. packstack is used to manage this dependency
at a higher level, allowing the RDO repo to be used without EPEL if desired.
Though that's not the common case. Also the edge case of avoiding EPEL is
handled with yum --disablerepo=epel ...
So this is a good suggestion and would avoid docs.
However this may involve a little packstack work to handle an EPEL repo
that was now installed by default.
I've logged https://bugzilla.redhat.com/974971 to discuss that.
