I've started noticing a pattern in 3rd party repos on RHEL/Centos outside of the well-mainiained EPEL: They break, often pretty quickly. PostGIS has been a shitshow on every server it's been on, as has Dell's linux toolset. They keep fucking breaking yum/dnf and it's just a complete mess to sort out.

Researchers that have their own VMs are very keen on curl | bashing their way through any how-to guide, adding all sorts of cruft that then completely toilets the machine a couple of months down the line.
