Not at all, I was just curious, that's all :-)
BTW, i'm not myself a CentOS developer, just someone who had a 
@centos.org email address alias by accident ;-)
That's a good point that ELRepo provides kmod for RHEL (or 
derivatives/clones) but on the other hand I also hope that CentOS will 
continue to provide those drbd packages in the Extras repo, so that all 
the CentOS users can directly install them without having to install 
[another] third-party repo.
If those packages are exactly at the same level and no diff exists 
between them, why not using the same spec that can be used for ELRepo 
and Extras at the same time ? Maybe i'm dreaming a little bit but i'm 
sure Ralph (who is now the drbd package maintainer for CentOS) doesn't 
mind at all on that point ...
