Yeah, but I don't expect from CentOS any stabilization - only rebuild
of packages.

Sorry, but I did not even realize that such thing as planet.c.o exist.
Also I did not realize that you and your blog exist.

The only thing that I see is that after a month and half only one
package has changed graphics/strings etc. Because I do not see any
progress on http://wiki.centos.org/QaWiki/6/AuditStatus I'm wondering
if CentOS team wants to release this OS this year, next year or
anytime in the near future.
