In the past, we had specifically avoided doing this for a few reasons:

1. We didn't want to be accused of playing favorites with 3rd party repos

2. We didn't want the expectation of support ("I didn't add anything to
the default centos, I just yum-installed it!")

3. We didn't want to ship code that wasn't built/signed by us.

Given the new structure, it may be worth having this conversation again.
Thoughts from the community?
