[CentOS-devel] possibility of an extra-hardware-support SIG

I only thought of sf as being used since someone could setup a project with full resources when they don't have any of their own to support such a prolonged initiative as a project.  I was not aware that centos project had the resources that you mentioned below available for 3rd party developers on request.

The provision of allowing core centos members joint full control over these independent projects is so that the incubation period can be as long as need be without risking the project becoming orphaned.

if people are interested in creating sub-projects or creating/starting code work
that might be of some use to the CentOS userbase, we have resources within the
project that people would be most welcome to ask for.

If someone has something in mind, please feel free to ask. We can provide pretty
much anything that someone might want, any sort of VCS, mailing lists, trac
instances, bugzilla instances, webhosting space and a very effective mirror

as much as possible, it would be nice to not spread out too thin, however if
people would still like to use the likes of sf.net to host a project - I would
really like to know why. Perhaps, we could use that feedback to do things better.
