so, it looks like he just passthrough the "updates
jobs that have to be done" queue ? ;-)

I hope he will anwser my email :-) but...
first I don't want to irespect jonny and the rest of
centos team, they are doing a great amazing job, a lot
of peoples including me , are beneficiating from their
but, is there any chance that others "channels" that
uptreams release in its public ftp (mirrors) system
get processed like the os/update channel ?
I barely remember that someone from centos team said
sometime in the past that the update release in centos
is almost automatic: uptream release a package and
some scripts in centos dev pick them and compile them
and then release them as centos updates, am I correct?
if that is the case, could csgfs (or RHCS and RHGFS)
could be included in such enviroment?
if the procedure is just manual.... then I will
accept, without questions, centos team priorities :-)
