I won't comment on that as what I would say is not publicly acceptable.

We have standards that we have to meet to get the packages out the door
and testing that must be done.

There is the issue of who gets the private key and how do we get group
work time when we have people all over the world.

There is the transfer time of ISOs so that others can review / test
them.

Building the packages takes 1-2 days ... testing them, installing them,
comparing them to upstream packages, etc ... that takes time.

We are glad you want to help and we encourage it.  How to become a
member of the CentOS team is to ask.  

If you have an open source background (ie, have participated on help
site, have worked on an opensource project in the past, etc.).  If you
want to help, answer questions in the forum, etc.

How not to become a CentOS developer is to call one out on a public
mailinglist.

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes
