Hello KB,

could the build logs be made available to look at? That way people with
knowledge could look if the builds look sane that you want to include within
C6, but still no binary rpms would get out if you (or some unknown CentOS board)
want to keep it that way for the release process.

I'd be especially interested to hear how you want to set the perl vendor path
within C6. Scientific Linux stays very close to upstream and depends on each
upstream rpm on how that is set. Do you change rpms that don't rebuild cleanly or also
stay as close as possible on upstream rpms plus also their binary rpms?

Are all items besides the branding issues set in stone and finished already?
