It may be that no such project exists today, but if a truly open and 
cooperative EL rebuild effort existed, it might be good for CentOS.

SL does not hurt CentOS and there is some interchange and sharing of 
knowledge. Their goals are somewhat different, and they have a growing 
team of paid developers, but they address many of the same issues, and 
Johnny has mentioned looking at their packages.

An independent volunteer EL rebuild effort could help attack some of the 
rebuild issues without interfering with CentOS processes; but technical 
interchange could be mutually beneficial, particularly if the projects 
were not mutually hostile.  A bit of healthy competition might not be a 
bad thing either.


P.S. Just saw Johnny's post about the OT nature of this thread pop up as 
I prepared to hit Send, but given that I have mentioned CentOS in every 
paragraph I will do so anyway. :-)
