I'm happy to announce that kea-1.0.0 has been pushed into EPEL-7 stable
repository, which means that you can install it on RHEL-7/CentOS-7 with:

# yum install kea

Prior to that you need to install (if you haven't already)
'epel-release' package [1], which includes repository information and
gpg keys. For more information see [2].

There are kea-dhcp4, kea-dhcp6 and kea-dhcp-ddns service units, so you
can use 'systemctl start/stop/status/reload/restart/enable/disable/...'
to control them (adjust /etc/kea/kea.conf first).

If you hit any problems with the kea package, report them at [3].
