Hello Folks,

Starting with CentOS 7.5, ansible package will no be available in CentOS
-extras anymore as Red Hat decided to ship Ansible on a separate channel.

Looking at ansible package in CBS [1] I see that Troy, Fabian, Sandro
and Alan are rebuilding it.
Can we get better at that task ?

My proposal would to initiate a rebuild of the new Ansible
channel[2](within the Config Management SIG) and follow a better release

What do you think ? Would it be a solution from all SIG, or should we
continue to ship Ansible within each SIG ?

I would be happy to contribute the rebuild/debranding of existing
source rpms (all available versions) if we all agree.

Please note that EPEL is shipping again Ansible 2.5 as it was removed
from Extras [3]
