Hi Johnny,

I've been using SCL for some testing for a little while now.

I haven't really gotten around to posting a message regarding it due to
it was just working and I proceeded to do some work with it :-).

Sorry about that.

I've not experienced any issues with the repository so far, and I'm
guessing since there is not a load of people emailing saying "It
doesn't work" other people aren't having issues either, but I could be

Though I myself have only used the mariadb packages and various php

Out of curiosity, once it is deemed "stable" how do you intend to
provide the extra packages? will they be included with a default
install in a separate repository? or will they become part of
base? extras?

Just curious :-).

Additionally, I would like to say Thank You for providing these
packages :-).


Kind Regards,
