It doesn't for me. Worst case is that you have to point your yum repositories at a different URL.
Weirdness at CentOS

At any rate, if this incident does not have at least *some* effect on your opinion of how the project is being run, then I have to wonder about your judgment. For example, this single point of failure should not have been allowed by policy in the first place. Are there any others waiting in the wings?
That probably comes off as more sensationalist than I would normally be. But as you're pushing the point, I'm responding.

Nope. That is not what I meant at all.
I meant that the worst case is if CentOS folks can't get the Centos.org domain under their control then they will just use a different domain name. So I will have to use that in my Yum repo.
Just because they can't get rights to the DNS name does not mean that the project itself is in risk of dying. It just mean it's going to be a huge PITA for them to migrate over to another domain. (mailing lists, security certificates, developer contacts and all that)
