I'd certainly be in support of such a facility within CentOS, but before I raise my hand as a volunteer I should probably ask - what would be involved?

The fact that I have to ask that question in the first place may, in itself, be sufficient evidence that I'm not the right person for the job, but I figure I'd ask anyway.

More than happy to start the process of learning if someone can point me in the right direction...or just test stuff for others more suited to getting the project off the ground :)
