As per the suggestion on Dag's blog i would be very happy to
participate in any sort of beta for 5.3. I don't have a RHN
subscription so my ability to get hold of the iso is limited but there
are a couple of features in 5.3 that would be of use for my company's
current projects
- so much so that we may be delaying a proposed roll out for them

If there was to be any sort of CentOS based testing effort then i
would like to throw my hat (and a dell 2950III) into the ring

best wishes

mike
