Recently, I've been participating in some discussion as to how to enable
C++11 support for EPEL builds. Specifically, R (and its large universe
of addons in CRAN) would benefit significantly from C++11 support.
After much discussion, it seems like the only sane way to do this is to
use the Red Hat Developer Toolset (for el6 and el7). It is my
understanding that all RHEL customers (and CentOS users) should be able
to enable this repository without restrictions.
I'd like to propose that we enable the Developer Toolset repo in EPEL
and allow packages to depend on it. Thoughts?
