I am having difficulty seeing the benefit of having it as a subdirectory 
rather than as a separate repo that may contain the same packages

I appreciate that it would need to be added to yum conf, but that would be 
the case anyway with a subdirectory.

As rhwas is a separate product I propose that we have a separate repo for
