The Centos-devel mailing list, and the #centos-devel irc channel are
the big places. There are tracking bugs for most things in the
c4-testing repository (I slack off on this a bit, so they're not ALL
in there.. I'll fix that when I fix it.) where both positive and
negative feedback is welcomed.

Beyond the bugs.centos.org site, there isn't really a set "request"
path other than people asking in irc. Partially this is because some
people ask for some amazingly screwed up things that violate all sorts
of distro ideals (nightly kernel builds, beta versions of gnome.. that
sort of stuff)... and partly because irc provides me an opportunity to
hash out ideas or expectations for packages with the requester.

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
