OK, I have a s390x CentOS 4.5 up and running under VM.  Its current on
maintenance and now I am ready to start on the CentOS 5.x 
What are my next steps?  Is there doc somewhere?

Is one of those centos-4 ? thats the best place to start. get a minimal
centos-4 install setup. I can then work with your and get the bootstrap
stuff for centos-5 on there. ( I presume its c5 you are interested in
helping with, since c4 is already there ).

 I am not sure what we would achieve with a SIG at this stage, lets say
when there are 10 people contributing to the s390 effort we can move
away from this mailing list to one dedicated to -devel-s390. howse that
