This is sad - you guys do incredible work for nothing, other than the
satisfaction you must get and all the accolades we can heap on you,
and there's no way we, your community, can contribute.

Is there anything we, or I, can do to help out with this?  I feel like
a leech and I hate to feel that way.

I am not currently associated with the CentOS project in any way,
shape or form, but would love to help out, especially if it means
getting funding to the project.  It's just wrong that there isn't any.
