If I'm reading it correctly, I don't think Noah's question is about
these specific versions, I think it's about the ongoing maintenance
plans for how the CentOS-built community SCLs relate to the Red Hat
SCL product.

My own understanding is that the intent is for them to share source
code just as CentOS and RHEL do, with the differences being in where
they're built (CentOS community infrastructure vs Red Hat's certified
infrastructure) and the lack of commercial support from Red Hat for
the community versions.

The main thing changing with the move to using cbs.centos.org is that
there's now a clear upstream home for the softwarecollections.org
build process, rather than the relatively ad hoc approach that needed
to be adopted after Fedora's Engineering Steering Council rejected the
use of Fedora's infrastructure for that purpose.
