That could be.  I'm not sure which specific things you're referring to. 
  I vaguely recall frequent volunteers to engage in the 
build/test/release process met with the pronouncement that CentOS's team 
is a meritocracy and that people will be allowed in as they prove their 
worth.  The trouble seems to be that no one knows how to demonstrate 
their value.  The CentOS team's workings seem opaque to me.  Since I 
don't know anything about them, I realize that any idea I have about how 
to improve them may be completely invalid.  However, I think a lot of 
users would be happy if CentOS were as transparent as Fedora, with clear 
written guidelines regarding the project governance and processes.  In 
fact, I think it'd be wonderful to adopt Fedora's guidelines and 
technology as much as possible.
