[CentOS-devel] are there any chances to see finished CentOS6 in 2011?

Just a question:

If the problem is about lack of openness in Centos project, why don't "fork" it? ok, Centos is already a "fork" of RHEL

(Yes, it is), Scientific linux too (with some special packages for lab etc...):


A fork is simple to do and maybe the community behind will be more open, more reactive ?



Just a question ... not a troll (we are not Friday :)

Best regards,

Karanbir, your soft skills are just phantastic! That's what I call 'art
of debating things'. I hope you can see the irony in these lines.

In the past I was hoping to 'help', as I started a decade ago on NetBSD,
especially the macppc port.

No, I just sit here and stare at hundreds of hosts running CentOS. I
don't use it.

You definition of 'community' is rather interesting. I found that even
what wikipedia quotes is more realistic:

"(...) In human communities, intent, belief, resources, preferences,
needs, risks, and a number of other conditions may be present and
common, affecting the identity of the participants and their degree of
cohesiveness. (...)"

So, from your point of view, you use water (as you drink it). Welcome to
the water community. That's hilarious.

Karanbir, you still didn't get the point.

People were asking about the very principle of development of open
source software.

Waste of time, that is.
