[scl.org] Software collections on RHEL

Thanks for fixing the old repo packages! Looks like that resolved the build failures on my side for now, but I'll definitely circle back and get switched over to the centos-release-scl-rh package. As for using SCLo packages on RHEL, I don't have a RHEL subscription and RedHat doesn't (AFAIK) publish Docker images I could test on so it's preferable to use the same packages on CentOS and RHEL as I can only run integration tests on CentOS. Installing the COPR package via an HTTP download is cool though, should keep the drift between CentOS and RHEL to a minimum. Thanks again!

On its own this is kind of super uncool, but deeper than that is that it seems the Correct™ way to get the repos installed is to use `yum install centos-release-scl-rh` now. As expected from the name, this doesn't work on RHEL as that package isn't available outside of CentOS's repos. Is softwarecollections.org dropping RHEL support? And if so, what's the RHEL-official way to get things like Python 3 or Ruby 2 on RHEL 6/7? I'm happy to fix the Chef cookbooks to work whatever way is deemed official, but it seems like the RHEL and CentOS SCL folks are operating on entirely different wavelengths. Should I use softwarecollections .org for Cen!
