That is because CentOS Linux (other than Stream) is a rebuild of RHEL
source code .. so, that is how things get into base CentOS Linux.  We
don't accept input that deviates base CentOS Linux from RHEL source
code.  So, the way to get things into CentOS Linux is to get it into
RHEL Source Code.  The CentOS team does not control that process.

Now that CentOS Stream is being done .. that will be the process to get
things into RHEL Source Code from a CentOS Linux perspective.
