If you are refering to CentOS-2.1 or CentOS-3 I'd agree. But on CentOS-4
and CentOS-5 that is simply not true. I guess you are using a small
window onto what really is a distro to mean a snapshot in time.
As I said before, CentOS exists and that should prove that the distro is
self hosting in its entireity. There are pkgs with a .fc6. tag - but
look at their builddates and times. They were built completely within
the distro host. No fedora6 was used to build anything in centos-5.
