agreed [... I would limit what we do to CentOS specific 
extension doco only ... but cannot attain consensus on that]

-- but it sucks less badly than the abandoned mess at (I did a 
minimal fixup and threw up my hands in disgust -- what shall I 
do with it?):

We have a track record of putting support in lots of channels

Compare: #centos, which I designed a centos-specific question 
focus, with a training aspect for purposes that are not 
general, and #centos-social for the back chatter to permit a 
'relief valve' to point people at.

As a result we have a vibrant #centos which is 'a little 
different' and MUCH more usable and useful than ##linux or 
some closed upstream focused 'competitive channels' -- the 
results attained over time do the talking.
