The page is all of five days old, and the 'promo team money 
box and used to help CentOS' was unknown to me.  Additionally 
the use of an outside (non-centos) email address to receive 
monies is not something that has been brought to, nor approved 
by the dev team.

I am unsettled by this at first read, as the location of the 
content carries the implicit approval of being in on a 
moderated part of 'centos.org', compared, contra, to the ad 
hoc 'fan boi' enthusiasm, boosterism and advocacy, the 
forum, mailing list and their archives, and the newsletter 
[over which no editorial control is exercised by the dev 

I'll add a review of this to the next dev team agenda for the 
team to discuss the matter.
