Hey Radu-Cristian,

Communication problems are usually caused by both sides. If both the 
sender as well as the receiver are in the same context, communication is 
without errors. Transferring context is usually where it fails :)

Anyhow, the CentOS project decided in the past that providing EUS 
(z-channel) packages would add too much complexity for little gain and 
that users that really need this functionality in their environment 
probably are better off with support from Red Hat as well.

Besides the EUS source RPM packages are not released to the public, so you 
need those expensive entitlements to be able to rebuild them. So it seems 
a fair decision. (I am sure that if I am misrepresenting something, I wll 
be corrected asap :-))

I can only assume that Johnny's response was before this decision was 
taken. So nothing is contradicting, you just have old information and new 

Kind regards,
