I am expecting they will need to move to the remi repo because php-
is shipped in RHEL and we do not over-write those packages. In the
past RHEL would have shipped a php56 which would have done this, but
expect that they instead are wanting people to use SCL's for this.
Which would require us to either ship the SCLs ourselves (as we can't
assume a person has that repo turned on) or we create a repository
which requires them so that people aren't broken.
I have to check SCL , but SCL-epel sounds good to me
There is another option where someone packages up the php56 rpms in
some way which could be shipped in EPEL, but I think that is a large
amount of work and I believe remi has pointed people to use scl's
