You do net seem to understand .. CentOS does NOT fix or close technical
bugs that exist in both RHEL and CentOS.  We only fix bugs that we
create in the few packages we modify that are not in RHEL source code,
if we introduce them.

CentOS rebuilds RHEL source code .. if there is a bug in the RHEL source
code, CentOS fixes it when it is fixed in the RHEL source code and released.

Bugs.centos.org is a tool for the community to help each other fix, then
report to Red Hat (if it is a bug in RHEL code).  It is NOT a place to
get support for CentOS.

CentOS does not now, nor have we ever provides support via
bugs.centos.org.  If there is a bug that effects you .. fix it and
report what you did to fix it.  Any and all support (if you want to use
that term) for CentOS does now, and always has, come from the community.
