Here is the bottom line .. you can most definitely be anonymous and use
CentOS.  That is perfectly fine and we encourage it.

However contributions to CentOS are merit (meritocracy) based.  In order
to demonstrate merit one may not be anonymous, since merit is earned.

When we give people permission to do "enhanced" things, that "enhanced
permission" is based on merit.

So, no name == no merit == no permission

it is no more or less complicated than that.
