It's not fair to blame the volunteers. There wasn't the right infrastructure
for volunteers, either. Chicken and egg. Possibly someone awesome and
energetic could have seized the project and ran with it (as Jesse did to
start it), but that's a lot to hope for and too much to count on.

So, maybe some stronger bridges to (and, most to the point, back *from*)
CentOS are in order....
