Indeed, it was a bit strange.  Perhaps someone with more
insight into the rationale can comment.  I have no
particular knowledge of things, but maybe keeping a fast
moving project like ansible in even the RHEL extras channel
was a problem.

Maybe the plan with the move to the "Ansible Engine" channel
is to work closer with subscribers on migrating from version
to version.  And non-subscribers can just follow it in EPEL.

I'd be interested in hearing more about the change, though I
suspect those who know more either aren't on these lists or
can't say more than Red Hat's advisory has already.
