#topic devtoolset-4 rebuilding updates
   - bstinson plans to look at ^ in the evening hopefully
   - we're looking for a volunteer to write more tests for 
devtoolset-3/4 like 
   - and another volunteer to integrate tests from ^ to CentOS CI
   - #action Dominic and hhorak will talk after meeting about the tests 
and you then Dominic can do some magic in CI
   - for getting access to CI, follow 

#topic review of how development of new scls is working
   rought proposal: building packages -> candidate -> sanity testing -> 
testing -> [wait till rhscl is released] -> tag released -> sign&release
   - usual tagging process: tag -candidate -> [sanity testing] -> tag 
-testing -> [better testing] -> tag -released -> sign&release
   - how it will be done for collections that gonna be released in RHSCL 
in the future?
   - idea: such collections should stay in -testing until they are 
released in RHSCL -- bad idea? shout now.

#topic Provides/Obsoletes to centos-release-scl
   - there is the older repo package called centos-release-SCL with 
quite old packages and centos-release-scl now, witch packages build in cbs
   - we should add Provides/Obsoletes into centos-release-scl
   - #action hhorak will test it and ask someone to create an update

#topic package for RHEL users that installs sclo packages above RHSCL
   - there is currently no nice way how to install repo 
http://mirror.centos.org/centos-7/7/sclo/x86_64/sclo/ in RHEL, when user 
doesn't have centos-release-sclo packages available
   - a package in epel or in copr would do the work, while copr seems 
like a better alternative (some people might be not willing to enable 
epel for just this package + people were used to install packages from 
copr (or softwarecollections.org) and it haven't been issue)
   - #action hhorak will prepare the package and share on ML
