[CentOS-devel] CentOS 5.4 Status

Mr. Singh,

    Well, if I were going to add details as to what I could do to help the
build effort, how would I do that intelligently when no one is willing to
give a status as to where the build effort is in terms of the project
milestones or what resources are currently under demand by the project?

    I am going to tell you straight away, having read Russ' comments, I am
in no way interested to work with him, and it appears he must be one of the
development team leaders. During my work day I get paid to deal with unhappy
people all day long, I am loath to volunteer to do it for free in my spare
time after hours. If you and the development team want to attract more
assistance from people, take note that pissing people off when they ask the
status of a project is not the manner by which to ascend along that path.

    In the mean time, I shall await Russ' apology in precedence to making a
decision as to what resources (monetary, computer related, or personal time)
I have available in pursuance of furthering the effort at hand. If in fact
Russ is not really one of the project leaders, and is just a "rouge member",
do let me know that too.

    One last note, I might be the sort of person to go and say these things
point blank, as I am a more direct person, but I imagine that there are
people perhaps on this list who read Russ' comments and are thinking to
themselves, "WOW...pffft...I am just going to stick to reading this list,
who would want to work with this guy?...."

    Have a most wonderful and blessed day.

Just want to point out that I dont entirely disagree with Russ's post,
its usually a 'nice' thing to also add details on what you might be able
to offer to the build effort :)
