yes, you may right, but you got a litle noise from
this list. :-)
not exactly "users", more or less "powered users" :-)

that is why centos is much-much better solution than
whitebox (from my point of view)
I agree that Centos is not a one man's work, is
evident that developers talk and share ideas a lot,
that is great, but you might say 'core developers'
insted of just 'developers', and that is what I try to
point out.

I very wellcome your messages asking for opinions
about what to do with packages in the testing repo,
this kind of 'request of help' in the _developer_ list
is very-very good thing, it encorage 'powered users'
to be part of the project in some degree, and my point
was that that kind of request was miss from this list
since a lot of time ago, even when importants decision
were made none of the developers ( core developers)
ask for opinions in this list.
so I just wonder if one of the objetive of this list
was miss ....
any way, I just congratulate you and the rest of core
developers for let us help you with our opinions by
this list :-)
again, that was my impresion, I could be 200% wrong,
and never was like that
