All of that might be true, however this is not the place to discuss that.

The goal if CentOS is to exactly build RHEL's source code.  We do that.
 If that is not what you want in a Linux distribution, then CentOS is
not for you .. that is just the facts.

We are not going to change something that is designed a certain way in
RHEL source code.

So, that means that the place to have those discussions is not on a
CentOS list, but on a list where something can be done about it.  On the
list where the code is actually developed, on a Fedora List or a RHEL list.

That is not a threat, it is a promise.  I set the moderation bits on the
list.  I get dozens of emails off list asking for people to moderated on
the flame fest emails.

We should all be adult and professional enough to understand that
designing of software happens somewhere else and endlessly complaining
about it here does nothing to get it fixed.  It just annoys users who
want to use centos and get help using it.
