The information that pyrpkg is needed for using centpkg.py is in the
readme on the git.centos.org site in the centpkg repo.

EPEL release will indeed be part of c7-extras .. and also c5 and c6,
after the EPEL 7 repo comes out of beta. 

Until then, if someone is not smart enough to figure out how to make
centpkg to work with git.centos.org because they can't find a python
dep, then they likely should not be trying to build packages from git in
the first place.

It should also be noted that the other published python tool in
centos-common-git needs the package 'python-requests' which is in the
EPEL repo.  That is also in the readme for centos-common-git on the site
as well.
