Correct ... if RH makes the SRPMS available for the entire period (and
they should), then CentOS will be built them for the entire period.

If RH were to make publicly available their EUS SRPMS
then we would also build and release those.  The EUS SRPMS are not
publicly available.

Remember, we (the CentOS Dev Team) use CentOS in production.  That was
our major motivation to be in the project in the first place (to built
an enterprise distro that we can use).

We are all about providing a secure product for as long as possible ...
