Have you tested mixing rpms from Centos and Fedora? There might be enough
headaches trying to get this to work that it ends up not being worthwhile;
but if things aren't too bad it might work OK for you.

You might also be able to do something on the source level, pulling some
stuff from Redhat and other stuff from Fedora and using the open tools to
build your own distro. If you pull out some trademarks, then you could
distribute it and try to recruit other people to help with the work.
