trying to change that a bit with the distinction between :
- - CentOS Linux
- - CentOS Project ( which produces CentOS Linux, but isnt limited to
CentOS linux )

examples of what we have already done : xen4centos6
examples of what we are hoping to do : opennebula and the cloud-init
stack for cloud ecosystems

There are actually a bunch of other threads along the same topic, but
in a nutshell : if there is something anyone cares about, and there is
synergy within the established CentOS Project ecosystem - I am working
quite hard to remove barriers that would allow people to come up and
promote their builds into the centos.org platform ( either into
CentOS-Extras, CentOS-Plus or in their own dedicated repos like we did
for xen4centos6 )

questions ? please ask.
