Re: long term support release

Right. CentOS is a different distro. It is not RHEL nor Fedora.
It's the same difference as between Debian and its recompile called
Ubuntu.

RHEL and CentOS just happen to be largely compatible, because they are
derivatives from the same sources.

The compatibility isn't accidental. Unlike Ubuntu, which exists to fix issues in Debian, Centos is modified as little as legally permitted.

A yum repository for RHEL/Centos containing as many as possible of the additional packages available in fedora would pretty much fill the need being discussed here. Or several, if the primary one won't include Sun Java, vlc + codecs, and Nvidia/Ati drivers.
