wounded in the line of duty
No, it is not related to the RPMforge or ELRepo projects.
I don't know why the CentOS project prefers to keep everything closed and doesn't acknowledge that 3 months (CentOS 5.6) and 6 months (CentOS 6.0) is a long time for releasing their rebuilds.
Because the process is pretty much closed, and there's an omerta for everyone involved in the release process, there's little opportunity to see the situation improve.
And by not opening up the process or share experiences, the project doesn't enable other people to experiment or start a competing effort. And despite the name, it's neither a community effort, or Enterprise class. (Enterprises don't wait 3 months for security updates)
It's sad, so sad :-/ And despite all this, I felt responsible for promoting CentOS to people for 4 years.
