Karanbir, as this is a fairly new Process, not documented anywhere, how
would you expect the masses to help you out?

Even if i look at the site you sugested to us, clearly, it states:

<snip>

webapp for people to suggest patches and branding changes : http://url
( coming soon : this will visible and usable by anyone, not just the
QaTeam ) 

</snip>

So this webapp is now bugs.centos.org? Fine, then please state it there.
Else maybe some of us where waiting for that webapp to come to glory.

How they get the RHEL Beta, where to look in the rpms? 
What must be reported?
