Maybe it would make more sense to turn this list into 'Centos-users' 
where anything someone might do would be on topic as long as it involved 
a system running Centos (or planning to run it).  That may be the way 
everyone but Karanbir thinks of it anyway now.   Then add a new list 
called Centos-development or Centos-bugs to deal specifically with 
problems in Centos itself or getting it to install.  As someone else 
mentioned, Centos usually 'just works' so that would probably be very 
low-traffic.
