Red Hat distributes the source without restrictions and e.g. kernel.org
is mirroring it out on all its mirror systems, so there is no requirement
to keep the CentOS source hidden due to branding/whitelisting issues AFAIK.

I agree that binaries should maybe be kept until the branding and major
patching items are resolved, but clearly all this is a chicken-egg situation
on how to grow the participation for CentOS, right?
