Tired of Fedora, shopping for a new OS. Upgrade from F8 ? CentOS kernel versions ?

b) One of the things I really need are up to date (bleeding edge)
kernels. For example, F8 has 2.6.26 kernels, whereas CentOS appears to
be running 2.6.18 kernels. I do know how to build my own kernels, but
that is a pain.
Does someone keep a separate repository that has more modern kernels ?
Can yum be configured to use only specific packages (ie kernels) from a
specific repository ?
Why not step up and offer to maintain a bleeding edge kernel in the
centos-plus repos ?
That would not be a bad idea. I always wondered how well a recent kernel
would work with CentOS 5, but I never took the time to test a Fedora
kernel on my dependable boxes.
A project with this focus might indeed be useful.
