So it's absolutely normal a CentOS 5.6 release is 10 weeks late and 
there's no intent to speed up the process to lower the time to do future 
releases ?

If that is the case, we might want to make that more clear on the wiki, 
eg. in my CentOS introduction presentation from 2008 we still mention that 
releases are (up to) 4 weeks behind RHEL.

I don't think most of the users ever expected to be without security 
updates for 10 weeks or more when choosing CentOS, and that is an 
important characteristic.
