The issue is specifically with the ability to push sources to
git.centos.org in the shadow cache.

I can't do that in the current setup, only Red Hat RCM can.  I can push
text into git, but not binary files to shadow cache.

The only package impacted is centos-release, because it is the only
package that we actually change the tarball and where I would need to
push to shadow cache.

If I push the spec changes, but not the shadow cache changes, it renders
centos-release not buildable.

We are working on an update whereby I will be able to push the changes
to git.centos.org .. when we get that in place, I will maintain
centos-release there like all the other packages.

In the mean time, we have a 'unified centos-release' here in git (for
all c7 arches):


You will still need to download the SRPM to get the tarball.
