Status currently is that I have a version built for CentOS-7 x86_64.
I am currently still building the require toolsets for i386 as
firefox.i686 is released as a multilib package in the x86_64 repo.
So, I can't release the x86_64 package without the i686 one.
You can download the x86_64 package manually if you don't want to wait
.. but I should have them both (i686 and x86_64) for CentOS-7 later today.
Here is the built package for x86_64 (and the build logs, etc):
For CentOS-6 .. still building the required toolkits for both x86_64 and
i386. Should have everything there done i a couple of days as well.
