If after so many years we still have the same issues, and the same threads 
and arguments come up, including the promise to fix it after the release 
gets out, but it never does, then yes, I become cynical.

It's been almost 2 years I left the CentOS team because I couldn't defend 
the CentOS project anymore. The only thing solved was the ownership of 
the CentOS name and domains, but all the other problems regarding code 
transparency, trust-issues, missing or delayed updates, governance, 
adding more people for redundancy, where the considerable ad income is 
going, etc...

But I am preaching to the wrong choir, because you obviously know all 


At least with your involvement I am confident CentOS 4.9 will not be as 
late as CentOS 4.8 was. (And this time I am not being cynical)
