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

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.
