Dear developers of CentOS, I plan to create/start Desktop 
version/fork/respin of CentOS, practically just to add useful packages, 
modified repository with prioritized third-party repositories, maybe few 
tweaks, and built ISO and repositories, so we are not limited to messing 
with manually adding third-party repositories and dealing with 
dependency problems. Basic repositories will remain from CentOS project.

I plan to latter on ask about endorsement, maybe even hosting/mirroring 
project or even running it under the CentOS project flag. I will have to 
formulate my goals for the project and see how it resonates with you, 
developers of CentOS.

For the time being, to keep the ball rolling, I have question about the 
name that you find acceptable (even in the case that I can not find 
common ground with CentOS project and it remains on the sidelines):

1. CentDOS (Community Enterprize Desktop Operating System)
2. DentOS  (Desktop Enterprize Operating System)
3. CentOS-DE (Community Enterprize Operating System - Desktop Edition)
4. Any new suggestion?

I personally and few other people like the first name, CentDOS.
