Description

For Katello 2.1, the Installation instructions need updating:

The Foreman repo for both EL6 & 7 probably needs to use:

yum -y localinstall http://yum.theforeman.org/releases/1.6/el6/x86_64/foreman-release.rpm

Reason: Katello 2.1 runs with Foreman 1.7

The EPEL repo for EL 7 needs to be updated to use:

yum -y localinstall http://mirror.pnl.gov/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-5.noarch.rpm

Reason: The epel-release-7-2.noarch.rpm no longer exists in the repository.

Would it make sense to provide something like a katello-release-2-2.rpm? Something that would detect the base OS and then pull in the correct versions of the various repo RPMs. Install instructions could then be simplified to:

yum -y localinstall http://yum.theforeman.org/katello/katello-release-2-2.rpm
yum -y install katello-installer

The install guide would then just reference a different version of this RPM depending on the version of Katello being installed. This would lower the barrier to community adoption, thus helping testing?
