Maybe I was a bit naive, but I thought the CentOS team had automated (or
semi-automated) the RPM rebuild to take the RH source RPMs and build CentOS
source and binary RPMs?

it appears (if you ignore the personal infighting) that their internal
system is really dependent on a hand full of people doing the work and
building the pieces.

I know it's more complex than a search-and-replace of all RedHat to CentOS
strings, but still I've automated more complex solutions...
