I don't think anybody wants a SLA from CentOS.

It's all about the money is it?

Johnny, why do you always reply with "don't use it" ? Or now i see "give 
me money and i'll do it" ?

Instead I would reply with a link to "here's how we do the rebuild now, 
here's the tools we use, and here's where we are at, help us out!" .

Instead of telling users to leave CentOS, ask for their help. Why not do 
that? I'm not sure, maybe all these resources are already online and I 
am not aware of them. That might very well be the case. However I am 
certain that if you would reply with an URL which states where the 
project is at, everybody would be happy, and you won't be seeing any 
"when is this ready?" questions.

If CentOS project is not so "closed" as it seems to be, please enlighten me.
