I thought we previously established that the CentOS developer(s) were not 
interested in a transparent development process that would take advantage 
of the resources of our community to speed up releases.

You seem to imply that there's only Red Hat and the CentOS community, if 
that's the case, and we all share the same privileges, where can I 
download the current state of the rebuild, the build-process, the current 
state of the changes ?

If this would be transparent, people would be able to help and improve the 
process. At the moment the community is at mercy to any weaknesses in the 
process for the security of their systems, held hostage by a handful of 
(volunteer) developers.

I, for one, do not think it is normal existing user's security is 2 or 3 
months at stake. Especially if there are people willing to help in this 
regard and/or willing to roll their own if needed.
