I would like to thank David for all the work he has done on Tao Linux in
the past, as well as the work we have done together during update cycles
to work though sticky issues that we've both had.

CentOS and Tao have always had a very good relationship, and we are
happy to integrate all current Tao users into CentOS.

I would also like to officially welcome David to the CentOS Development
team, though unofficially he has been on the team for a while now :).
