AWS Amazon Linux 2 (LTS) Extras Library

The Extras Library (aka Amazon Linux Extras Repository or Extras mechanism), provides a way to install up-to-date software bundles (topics in Amazon Linux 2 terminology) without impacting the stability of the rest of the operating system.

Extras Library is not covered by LTS!
