Hi Johnny,

Thanks for your response(s) much appreciated.

I am glad to hear the current SCL repository packages will continue to
receive updates until a SIG takes them over :-).

I'll look into the SIG builds of CentOS and see if it's possible to
simply add their repositories to an existing install of CentOS for the
sole purpose of grabbing RHEL SCL packages (With the help of
yum-priorities of course) :-).

Given me a fair bit to think about though, so got some planning to do as
well :-).

It's great to hear they are updated for now though gives me a bit of
breathing space when it comes to planning and testing :-).

Thanks Again,
