Someone just needs to spend the time to do it.  So who is that someone?  
The Fedora team already has their hands full; or is the Fedora team 
supposed to allocate already scarce volunteer resources to handle the 
needs of CentOS users?  (Red Hat likely already has one or more liaisons 
of this sort with the needs of Red Hat's customers in mind).

No, it seems to me that a suitably motivated CentOS user needs to 
scratch this itch; and, no, I am not volunteering, as I've followed 
Fedora before......and just simply cannot give the time to it at this 
point in time in my life.

So I shouldn't really complain, either, when a feature I use was removed 
way back then or a feature I would never use was added way back then, 
when I am getting many thousands of man-hours worth of work for free.  
If I want the right to complain, I need to ante up, either with money 
(and I did purchase and do annually renew my RHEL subscription) or with 
time (and I have done that, too, both as a Red Hat beta tester (prior to 
the Enterprise Linux / Fedora Core 'split') and by maintaining the 
PostgreSQL RPMs as a volunteer for five years, which is a far costlier 
thing to do!).  IMHO, of course.

So who wants to be the CentOS-Users to Fedora liaison, likely to be one 
of the most thankless jobs on the planet?
