(Obdiscaimer: I am not a CentOS developer)

You know, it really amuses me that there are all these "drive-by" offers of
"help" with every new release of CentOS.  If I were one of the developers,
I'd be getting a little annoyed right now.

If you really want to assist, why don't you invest the time and effort BEFORE
a release is near, helping out with all the standard stuff so that you can
gain the trust of the team, and become a real, long term, contributor.

Cheers! (Relax...have a homebrew)
