I thought we somewhen decided that handing out centosproject.org email
addresses would be a good thing for such a purpose?

It's should be quite easy to set up Google Apps for that domain, so
everyone who gets such an address could decide on his/her own what to
do with it (use it within gmail, redirect ...). If that's too much
overhead, simple redirects should also fit (as on fedoraproject.org
