That's a good question, as "orphaning" it would be an issue for all
people now getting it directly from Extras, if they don't have epel
added (also "opt-in")
AFAICS, nothing is pushed to git.centos.org anymore for it :
So I guess it would be a question for the centos-devel list :
- either we orphan it (and the other pkgs required for it) from extras
- or we try to build those and continue to provide ansible
Does it really matter which repo it comes from?
I would expect the users of ansible to be smart enough to get it from epel
or extras. As long as we know how to get it I do not see this as a big deal.
It seems that since it is already being built for EPEL, that would be the path
of least resistance for the Centos devs.
Just my $.02
