Because we want to have source code that works on both CentOS-6 (based
on RHEL 6 Source, which was based on Fedora 12) and CentOS-7 (based on
RHEL 7 Sources, which was based on Fedora 18/19).

So, the source code for Fedora 22 will not work with both of those.  We
DID start with the Fedora 12 version of the RPMs, that worked with
CentOS-6 and we have rolled in kernels from the kernel.org LTS tree for
stability, etc.

We have been producing a CentOS-6 version for several year now.  We now
need to make that work with CentOS-7.  It is not just as simple as
taking Fedora code, that is always latest and greatest and recompiling
it.  If it was, RHEL (and therefore CentOS) would have no need to exist
at all.  Everyone could just use Fedora for everything.
