Hi Honza,

sorry for the late reply, I went on long holidays and the thing slipped
under my radar.

Ok, thanks for the explanation.
Yes, automation wouldn't hurt ;-).

Cool. One thing I would recommend is to remove the "Related COPR
projects" from the page since some people might wrongly think that the
SCL is being built with COPR and/or use an old version.

In case of rh-postgresql94, the latest version in COPR is 9.4.5-1.el7
built in Nov 2015.

Yes, it did and thanks for prompt rebuilds of rh-postgresql94 in CBS!
