[scl.org] RPM list builder & RHSCL rebuild recipes

It might be nice to provide an sclo-python35 and sclo-python36 so that users such as we have an easier time not updating.   I hope we will not for a long time be in the situation between python 2.7 and python 3, but it could happen between 36 and 37 for any of a number of reasons.   However, that implies more work to get it set up.    It becomes non-automated as 37 comes out.

Subject: [scl.org] RPM list builder & RHSCL rebuild recipes

In putting together the todo list for the sclo-python SCL, Red Hat's Python maintenance team pointed me towards some of the tools used to maintain the Red Hat SCLs:

In particular, RPM List Builder automates running through a series of packages builds based on a YAML recipe file:

That then allows the build sequence for an SCL (including any required bootstrapping builds) to be automated. For example, the Python 3.5 SCL build sequence:

These aren't currently mentioned in the SCL guide or on the SCLo-SIG wiki, so I figured I'd start by posting a message about them here, and then after I have the sclo-python SCL up and running try to come up with some suitable documentation updates.
