For anyone not paying close attention: The "latest upstream" from RHEL in
the "extras" channel is a 2.4 release, the "latest upstream" from EPEL is
2.5. This is going to continue to cause update confusion depending on which
non-default channel is activated. If you want the "latest upstream" from
ansible source for ovirt, you need the EPEL version, not the RHEL extras

I realize it's late, but would it make sense to start publishing
"ansible24", "ansible25", etc. to avoid these conflicts? Similar work was
done for RT, Berkeley DB, gcc, and openssl in the past.
