Considering how much Redhat benefits from your work it is appalling to
think they do not make sure you have entitlements. But us Centos users
would welcome you with open arms I am sure, and hopefully stir up some
activity for your wish list as well :-)

Speaking of wish lists, the guys/gals doing all the leg work for Centos
should get one going for themselves as well.
