That would be splendid if you manage to do it.

However, it would be nice to know for what purpose they are going to
use it for? Desktop or both Desktop/Server? Fedora will be fine as
Desktop while CentOS should be preferred for the server if they don't
want to upgrade their servers every year.

Let us know how we can help and thanks for doing this.

At this point, that may be a bit premature but it is your call.
