SCL packages in CentOS 7 that are expired and EOL

Hi all

I just had a glance at the various repos installed by centos-release-scl
on CentOS 7 and a large number of the packages available in the CentOS
version of this repo are both old and out of date and more importantly,
EOL. They should be removed from our repos ASAP.

I know we had/have a policy of cleaning these repos up at point release
times but it's quite apparent that we have missed all of these for a
number of point releases from 7.3 onwards. Thus I propose we make an
exception for these and remove them anyway, regardless of point release
time or not. A lot of them should have been gone for 3 years already.

The following are all dead as per
<a href="https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/rhscl" title="https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/rhscl">https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/rhscl</a> - some of them
deader than others.
