I believe is disagree about how CentOS works. I believe CentOS is a 
binary replica of RedHat Enterprise, and whatever is broken in RedHat 
Enterprise can only be fixed there.

The way you [we] can affect RedHat Enterprise is through their open 
feedback (not their customer feedback which general publick has no 
access to), though I have no knowledge is that exists and in what form.

But Brilliant people who put together CentOS (thanks a lot, guys!) may 
chime in to correct me.
