SCL 1.1 builds needed for EL rebuilds (CentOS, SL)
RHSCL 1.1 has been released, but isn't available for CentOS yet. There are issues with build deps missing: http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2014-July/011592.html. Scientific Linux has rebuilt 1.1 for EL6, but not for EL7 yet.
Our ability to move to our own SCL and use newer collections depends on 1.1.
The RHSCL team have rebuilds published on http://softwarecollections.org (https://www.softwarecollections.org/en/scls/user/rhscl/), but at the time of writing they're still around version 1.0 (betas?). I believe they're working on rebuilds of 1.1, which I hope will be available in due course.
If we move to recommending scl.org, the installer will probably need to be updated to configure the repos, as will the docs.
fixes #7234 - add foreman-release-scl meta-package
Depends on the release RPMs from softwarecollections.org, for RHEL clone users
to get the repositories that provide RHSCL rebuilds.
extras/ will be consumed by the mash split script when we build repos, much
like comps/. These files will be fetched and included into the finished repo.

scl.org has RHSCL 1.1 rebuilds now, minus one missing package in ruby193-el7 which should be resolved soon.
I posted https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/foreman-dev/v0XZj-tGdl8 to ask for opinions about the direction we should take.
