Packaging for the CentOS Storage SIG does not take much time either. At
the moment I think only Kaleb and I have the permissions to do so. Still
waiting for other contributors to reply to Sankarshans email

The other community packages that Kaleb singlehandedly builds takes
(much) more time. Contributors for those are very much wanted, I think.

I don't mind doing an early/extra CentOS Storage SIG build.
