No, I was not aware of this. Even though I was building my own repo and 
packages at that time, I think I became more active on CentOS mailing 
list (and following more closely events) only after that time frame.

But that is exactly what I would like to see. I've created my own LiveCD 
for 5.3 2 months after that event with mdadm and LVM support, GParted, 
Krusader, mc, Skype (I think) and other packages so I have disaster 
recovery CD able to perform all desktop functions including 
communication and net surfing. I still carry it with me until I 
supersede it with 6.x version (but not replace it, for older PC's).


I see that this threatens to turn from name audition to discussion, So I 
offer following solution:

1. All of you think about what name would be acceptable for CentOS 
sponsored project (if such desire exists), and what would be acceptable 
for separate project (headed by me for example).

2. I will write the text, in next 7 days, that will embody my vision for 
CentOS based fork(s?), and then we can discuss it in detail. At the 
moment I have to answer about my envision without comprehensive 
overview, and it could become a very long thread.
