Were it up to me, I'd post the RPMs for RHEL with a prominent
disclaimer on the support issue. (But then I'd probably want to
separate builds for RHEL3/RHEL4...) Many people aren't aware of the
improved ability to build RHEL packages from the tarball, and they
only see the complete lack of RHEL binary packages as non-support for RHEL.
And I think a CentOS "branch" symlinked to the RHEL branch, or
vice-versa, would be a nice recognition of that program...
