It's a good answer. But Johnny Hughes (as opposed to JohnS)? Can you
publish or provide source control access to those bootstrap tools
necessary to build the CentOS 6 staged environment? I can bootstrap a
test environment with those, but don't want to re-invent your
particular wheel. It would be particularly useful for pre-testing
patches for the existing bugs for folks like me who like to do that
sort of thing.
