Description

Because of changes at softwarecollections.org, we ended up changing the way we get Software Collections in #7953. We now follow this process from the CentOS wiki, which is actually simpler.

Now, we can just tell people to yum install centos-release-SCL as a prerequisite. Our packages will pull in the necessary Software Collections as a dependency. We never need to point people at softwarecollections.org, or tell them to install Software Collections packages manually.

7953: Update test procedure for CentOS 6 packages.

Don't install any Software Collections in the Dockerfile, just the
Software Collections tools. Test that our packages correctly declare
their dependency on the relevant Software Collection, and that it gets
pulled in. We want to tell users to install this way, so this makes
sure it's working.

Just one question. Would it be better to move the note up in sdk-python.html (above the "On Debian-based systems:" line) similar to workbench update?

LGTM either way.
