  My current understanding is that the ongoing build of CentOS 6.0 is still
  running in minimal mode. I expect it to pick up speed once all the current
  CentOS 5.6 updates have been built and pushed to the update queue.

  I will be discussing the 6.0 build status with Karanbir in the next few
  days and hopefully will have something a little less tenuous to report
  early-ish next week.

  I think it is fair to say that as CentOS 6.0 is a new entry into the
  product line, it may spend somewhat more time in QA whilst the critical
  eyes give it close scrutiny.


Presumably, this means that it is reasonable to expect a longer window than
the early optimistic estimates of two weeks after the CentOS 5.6 release.
