Over the years, we have had a silent group of people, who have helped,
promoted, contributed code, helped QA, helped in various other parallel
efforts that all bring together the CentOS Ecosystem. Its time we did
something to promote these people, make them visible and to give them
credit for the work and efforts they have been putting in. After all, a
large chunk of reward for open source efforts is recognition.

To this end, I'd like to propose the CentOS VIP effort. A draft overview
is posted here : http://wiki.centos.org/KaranbirSingh/VIP

A key takeaway from this is that this group would in effect take over
running most of the project activities, with the CentOS Core team now
back tracking to running admin and project specific tasks ( eg. making
sure the centos.org domain name is paid for and renewed! ).

I am looking for comments on things to add / remove / change, as well as
a couple of voulenteers to help run the infra around this effort.
