Hi Brandon, KB

Yes - the below conclusion is correct.

We are pushing and 'poking' Red Hat to release the SRPMS on redhat ftp  
site on a weekly basis... once we have a ETA date we will let the team  
know.

We look forward to working closely withe the CentOS folks to create  
the CentOS HPC distro and to form the HPC SIG...

Cheers!

ps. Brandon - did you pick up the bjob t-shirt at Platform's booth? if  
you did not... you may want to go back and get it!
