There is an old version for CentOS 5.x but it has not been updated for a 
very long time. It would be possible to create one of 6.x, of course, 
but then I would need 36 hour days :-)

It would also be a tradeoff, it would work well until a key application 
needs a newer version of, say, gtk and then the upgrade path for that 
application will stop right there.

I'm not saying I enjoy tracking Fedora (quite the opposite), just that 
the "stable" world of CentOS/etc would bring its own set of problems.
