I think it would be best if this becomes a project in its own respect
on projects.centos.org. The page I referred to, as well as other
relevant information could be hosted there.

But to make this an official subproject, we need somebody who is
willing to lead it. I am willing to serve as a devteam member on such
subproject, and it seems Karanbir is as well. I can also work on the
Anaconda issues, but currently I just don't have the time to
coordinate this.

So, if you know how to customize specfiles, a bit of gcc flag
tweaking, and possibly some Python, and sorely need CentOS 5 for i586
on your VIA or legacy boxes, speak up :).

Take care,
