I do understand the conflict, just pointing out the other side.  The 
goal for Centos isn't so much to build a 'better' distro by accumulating 
fixes that make it better for particular purposes as it is to build as 
nearly exact a copy of RHEL as legally permitted.  But community 
involvement happens because people need to fix something for their own use.
