Could you try this newer build of sclo-vagrant1-vagrant (the -5
release)? http://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=11113

It's been tagged for release already so I expect it'll appear on the
mirrors within a few days.

(see also https://www.redhat.com/archives/sclorg/2016-May/msg00014.html
where this was discussed and hopefully fixed)

This appears to have been changed in
http://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=10807, but I don't see why.
The changelog is pretty unhelpful, but comparing the specs shows that
%install_scl's been flipped to zero which isn't common in SCL meta RPMs.

Unexpected to me, I think the RPMs should have been put to the testing
repo before being released.
