the change in centos-release to default to .elN.centos instead of .elN 
is "new", relatively speaking ( *). and makes life a bit awkward for 
those who want to recompile a src.rpm and end with .el7.centos instead 
of .el as release tag

*  it appeared in C6, sometime last year. there was a mail thread on that
