Custom CentOS spin

It's exceptionally difficult and unreliable for RHEL or CentOS to build packages for current or recent releases with "mock" or other chroot cage tool kits. Too many non-backwards compatible changes in RPM and yum.

I use mock and a recent Fedora to build packages for RHEL, especially to test EPEL compatibility.
