Kai, as you may not already know, Will Rogers said "Everybody is
ignorant, only on different subjects."

e.g., I expressed my ignorance about just how far the binary
compatibility with RedHat extended within the CentOS community and
have learned from the questions posed.  I think it fair to say the
objective of binary compatibility has greater weight with CentOS folks
than completeness and correctness, but that's JMHO and like Dennis
Miller, I could be wrong about that.

As Will's fellow OKie, if you don't already know about kill files,
I'll help Will do posthumously what he might have done if he were
alive today reading this CentOS list, namely refer you to

I am somewhat saddened that Browning's "“Ah, but a man's reach should
exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?” doesn't seem enough to
cause sufficient interest in an auxiliary repo consisting exclusively
of current release intrinsic functions like BIND, DHCP, et al.

Perhaps the most encouraging remark came from Karanbir, namely:
