The CentOS Project wants to announce that we have released the Software
Collections (SCL) for CentOS-6 x86_64.

Software collections only work with CentOS-6.4 and CentOS-6.5 .. earlier
versions of CentOS-6 may not work with some SCL packages.

Information about SCLs can be found here:


Sections of the upstream documentation that discuss RHN for delivery or
reporting bugs to the upstream bugzilla are not applicable to CentOS
(that is Section 2.1, Section 2.8 and all of Chapter 3 of the Revision
1.0-17.400 of the linked Release Notes).

To get Software Collections for CentOS, you need to do:

yum install centos-release-SCL

After installation of the release file, to get specific SCL packages the
linked upstream release notes can be used (ie, yum install php54

All bugs for the CentOS Software Collections should be made via
