KDE 4, localapps and sound are a minimum for me, as is a recent kernel
so F12/LTSP 5 is pretty much my baseline.  I am quite happy with F12
K12Linux but of course F12 will be EOL in a couple of months.  I plan on
upgrading to F13 to buy me another 6 months, but after that I too would
like a long term supported system that meets my requirements.  That
sounds exactly like CentOS 6 + LTSP 5.

I have a small amount of packaging experience and like others would be
willing to help package.  The bigger issue is probably any other
development related integration issues.  Is anyone with that kind of
skillset willing/able to work on this?  Work could start now on RHEL6
beta, which is an open (free) release.
