Well, I'm building for people running EPEL, and I didn't see this isn't
with packages that depend on anything scl.  The scl stuff needs to be
installed initially, e.g. in copr root parameters, if you're going to
build scl packages at some stage.

(I don't understand why software collections aren't allowed so that more
packages could be contributed.)

Inclusion of SCLs has been discussed several times and there's just never been a way to make it work. If I recall correctly, Fedora still doesn't allow SCLs as well.
