You are looking for problems to fix where there are none.  The overall state of
that page is and has been fine for many years.  EL requires external third-
party repos.  It has always been this way and it will always continue to
be the case.  Your proposal to remove the listings that are there now
serves no one and will only create more of a support burden on the
people that are volunteering their time.

Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
definition, not smart enough to debug it.
