Just to carry this a little further ...

If the 850,000 unique IPs that get updates from us in the last 12 months
paid the project $30.00 each .... that is:

$25.5 Million Dollars

Now, if I had $25.5 million dollars, I would make sure that you got your
respin updates the next day (exactly as they come form upstream).

Of course, CentOS is free ... and we don't get paid anything ... BUT, it
would be nice.
