wounded in the line of duty
Dag, I respect your thoughts and attitude towards the Centos team, but to people who are quickly shouting attotv about Scientific Linux, i have a few words to remind that we all face the possibility of history repeating itself in this case. Remember how WhiteBox Linux and other similar efforts fail and how Centos rose to the tide? I admit that things are gloomy in terms of co-operation at centos side, but won't the same issues arise at Scientific Linux in the future? I assume a few ddisgruntled dev will leap over from Centos to SL and the question is how open is SL's release process? and how robust is it?
My sixth sense tells me it would be better to fight on the Centos release process, demand some real changes, demand openess and a clear operating code. There is still a bright future for centos if the team is willing to work things out. The worst would be for all of us to pack and convert to SL. This will set a bad precedence and future efforts on recompiled distributions will will suffer similar fate. This is just my 2 cents, somebody has to fight on for the good of centos. There are a few other guys like Dag who are able to have a voice in the centos community, guys dont let us down...
