Red Hat announced today that Ansible was being deprecated
from the extras channel.  Their advice is that those who
have "previously installed Ansible and its dependencies from
the Extras channel are advised to enable and update from the
Ansible Engine channel, or uninstall the packages as future
errata will not be provided from the Extras channel."


Given that, I believe it is reasonable to see ansible return
to EPEL.  This was discussed in previous EPEL meetings a
bit, so I'm sure it was known to at least some of the folks

Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
