The CentOS Upgrade Tool needs a good team to manage it from the
community.  I have asked several times on this list for maintainers.  An
upgrade Special Interest Group could be started, or people could just
fork it and maintain it.  The Source Code for the Red Hat EL6 and EL7
tools are in git.centos.org, but they needs modification to work with

The above wiki page links the 3 important packages (preupgrade
assistant, upgrade tool, preupgrade assistant content)

openscap also needs to be modified to use these on CentOS.

Anyone willing to give it a go?  Check the wiki and the packages on
git.centos.org from the links on the wiki.
