I think there were some feature issues as well, but auth was the first
blocker. this is being worked out - so there is potential for people to
come help and make things happen. At the moment, the auth issue is being
handled in the buildsystem meetings that take place on irc.freenode.net
in #centos-devel at 13:00 UTC, every week. Come join, even if its just
to participate and comment on process being used.
