##Overview

Module for managing the ELRepo repository.

From the ELRepo Project page http://elrepo.org/tiki/tiki-index.php:

ELRepo is a community repository for Enterprise Linux distributions (e.g, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS, Scientific Linux).

ELRepo currently focuses on hardware related packages to boost your experience with Enterprise Linux. For example, this includes filesystem, graphics, hardware monitoring, network, sound and webcam drivers.

All our packages are built against the RHEL kernel and are compatible with other clone distributions who maintain compatibility with the RHEL kernel (e.g, CentOS, Scientific Linux). ELRepo packages are not compatible with clone distributions known to break kernel ABI compatibility (e.g, ClearOS).
