[Ala-portal] Red Hat installations with Ansible

Hi all,

During the workshop currently ongoing in Australia, some people have asked about operating system support and have had varying levels of success with using Red Hat based systems.  
The level of success appears to relate to the version of Ansible people use, and I believe there is a bug (or deliberate change) in Ansible 1.6.6 (not in 1.5.x) that stopped things working with an error “repository $datastax is not found”.

With this commit [1] (today) the script will now run on a vanilla CentOS 6.5 installation and using Ansible version 1.6.6 and Ansible 1.5.5.  Please update (git pull) and retry if you are seeing this issue.

Regarding operating system selection:
The ALA folks run on Ubuntu and that is the ALA supported version.  Realistically other system support will have to be done by the community of adopters, which should not be difficult, but will require some basic Ansible knowledge.
