What you see as a defense, I saw as an explanation to why it is the way it
is. I think nobody argues that it is great the way it is. Especially
within the CentOS project because it hurts our effort too.

I am not disagreeing with you at all, but I don't see any solution from
CentOS does not have customers, and nothing should hold you back to
implement a solution and offer it to Red Hat. CentOS can even help
you with the resources if you want to make a CentOS project out of it.
(Although it probably makes more sense as a Fedora or Red Hat project)
But at the moment this is yet another task that requires people's time
and I am not sure if we want to dedicate existing CentOS people to such a
project if it has an impact on more important deliverables.
The question really is: are you willing to be part of the solution ?
I'd say we need more people to take action, and less people to argue :)
If nobody stands up to fix this, we might see it as a sign that nobody
thinks it is important (enough).
