This is not that easy, because RH packages don't use an RPM package for 
shipping repo file and key -- and there is probably no similar RPM that 
we could use.

We can either create a separate a new RPM package with just sclo repo 
file and key or as already proposed before, something like this:
* centos-release-scl-rh as now, no difference here
* centos-release-scl-sclo, that ships repo file and key
* centos-release-scl that requires both of the images above, but doesn't 
ship anything.

In case the key won't change often (which I don't expect), we can also 
have a package build in copr and available on softwarecollections.org if 
something like the above would be bad idea.
