The problem is that the gcc version RedHat used to build the kernel
never has been released.

No, normally with the compiler which is used by upstream (and wasn't
available). How do you know that a new compiler doesn't introduce new
bugs when building the kernel?

I still haven't understood what you mean by "Rules only for some
people". As already stated: CentOS *tries* to stay as close as possible
to the upstream release. It looks like that isn't always possible (as in
this case, where the build chain from upstream hadn't been released).

The only case I see where CentOS (base!) strays from upstream is the
i586 kernel which can be used at installation time and the packaging of
yum (as RHN isn't available).

It might have been the way you asked. Calling people "unprofessional"
and mark their doings as "PLAIN WRONG" really doesn't help. Claiming
that they don't know "what is giving back" and suggesting that they do
not have a subscription while "using all that from REDHAT" doesn't help
either. Please reread your statements (and *HOW* you put them) in that
bug report.
