That is so very true.

I guess my concern is, how long will CentOS5 be around for? Will there
be a CentOS6? If so when will that come out and if different versions
come out wouldn't that be the same as what we're doing now?

I'm assuming creating custom ATI packages can be done if we wanted?
Many users have ATI including me ;-)

And I for one appreciate all that you do and I know you would support
this. I've asked Ryan Pisani if he would be interested in working on
this but I believe he is out of the country at the moment. That
doesn't mean that anyone couldn't if they so desired. I've never
fooled with CentOS but I assume that it's just like Fedora and things
are placed in the same way. If not then some mining tweaking would
need to be done to the custom rpms we have now. I'm certainly not
opposed to this by any means. I mean if this is something that is more
secure and can be fully updated, like a dist-upgrade, without blowing
up your build then that would be nice. I'm not sure either on what
sort of license issues there might be Axel. For instance a name,
logos, etc. I know that Jarod found out that we had to remove some
artwork out of the 4.0 version before it was released. Also if this
does materialize Axel, I guess your the only one in town that supports
a CentOS repository?
