That repo was built by Michael for the client packages to reside and I'm
very happy that he did that :}.  I'm not sure if he plans on updating it
as releases move forward (as I understood it it was a temporary
solution), but I figured it's best to have those packages in CentOs
directly, especially the tools needed for registration and updating
(since the are directly in RHEL).

Basically this project will take all of those packages and get them into
CentOs Proper, pulling from the latest RHEL release just as CentOs does
with all of it's core packages.

Hopefully Micheal will be able to contribute to this as well :}
