This is not quite right.

I offered my help for testing pre-CentOS6 alpha/beta versions.
Furthermore, my company could help with the infrastructure for CentOS6. (mirror and build server for a fast and open development process of CentOS6)

You have offered me to help with packages that need upstream branding removed.

This is very difficult to realize when the primary mailing list (centos-qa) is completely closed to outsiders.

Apparently you misunderstood my offer to help. I'm sorry.

Without access to beta versions, RPMS and the important qa-mailinglist... How can we help?

This is not my view of community and Open source.

Best regards,
