Yes, see this link:


Obviously, any mention of RHN and subscriptions should be ignored and
instead the setup to get software collections is:

yum install centos-release-SCL

Once the release package is installed, all the "yum install" directions
in the documentation will work fine.

(so that means my command above replaces Section 2.1 in the
documentation, but the rest of the documentation is going to work correctly)
