I've not said anything about the subject as yet really - but thanks for 
your comments here and I know that pretty much everyone on the CentOS 
team would agree to reconsidering the issues we spoke about a long time 
back and to see if and how the projects might be able to work closer in 
the future.

However, the one thing that most people seem to be moving on already is 
the assumption that CentOS is about to go away - which isnt correct at 
all. For the users, we will make sure that there is as little an impact 
as possible.
