That appears to rule out elrepo and IUS ever being allowed to get
into extras which seems like a change of policy from before when it
was: "come up with some criteria by which we can make impartial
decisions". In both cases, they do not target CentOS alone, they
exist to serve the entire EL community. Making them build in CBS
would then rule out their repos being used on RHEL and/or SL. I
don't think this is a good idea either.<br>
