Considering Red Hat bought entire CentOS project in total secret, or
should we say bribed CentOS dev group with jobs, you do not get to say
"why should we continue to build it" without admitting that Red Hat's
goal was to kill it all along but needed to control the clone building
process first. How was it said? Embrace, Engulf, Extinguish?
Either say both or neither.
