That's a good question, as "orphaning" it would be an issue for all
people now getting it directly from Extras, if they don't have epel
added (also "opt-in")

AFAICS, nothing is pushed to git.centos.org anymore for it :

So I guess it would be a question for the centos-devel list :
- either we orphan it (and the other pkgs required for it) from extras
- or we try to build those and continue to provide ansible
