My reason for mentioning it here is that they are organizing CentOS
SIGs to work on respins and distributions for special purposes, so
anyone capable of helping might want to get involved.  I don't use it
myself anymore but always thought that the old k12ltsp version that,
up through CentOS5, just came up working on a 2-nic server was
fantastic and helped a lot of people who might not otherwise have been
able to use linux.   It might be possible to re-create that kind of
installable distribution again.
