Red Hat Software Collections 1.1 beta for RHEL7 RC

The same components found in Red Hat Software Collections 1.1 (RHSCL) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 can now be used on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Release Candidate.  For example, RHSCL components such as Python 3.3, MongoDB 2.4, and PHP 5.5 can be utilized on both RHEL 6 and 7, and if desired, simplify a RHEL 6-to-7 migration later.
