Thats just noise. There are a lot of people who do source builds as 
well, and we strongly discourage people from using that process.

My question is - why did they not consider actually doing this with the 
project or even talking to anyone within the communities.

Rackspace are the typical leecher commercial vendors feeding off the 
CentOS pool, with little or not desire to even consider contributing any 
level of effort or time back into the project. To me, thats a big deal.

I'm voting for not listing them on the wiki. Also, what is it that the 
IUS repo does that isnt available on the other regular 
non-commercially-backed repositories ?
