[scl.org] Solution for softwarecollections.org troubles

Most of the software collections (SCL), that are available on 
softwarecollections.org, are now built in cbs.centos.org and the plan 
was to promote those builds quite soon as official community builds of SCLs.

Since the website softwarecollections.org has experienced troubles these 
days, I believe we can officially suggest using builds from CentOS Build 
System as the solution -- not only for now, but also for the future, 
because it would happen anyway.

The software collection packages are now available on CentOS mirrors and 
you can install the repo RPM this way:

   $ sudo yum install centos-release-scl

(repo package is available for centos6 [1] or centos7 [2])

Then, you can install particular collections:

   $ sudo yum install rh-ruby22 rh-ror41

Official announcements for the CentOS hosted collections will follow in 
couple of next days, but you are safe to use the collections now already.
