That makes perfect sense - however, its not a case of one or the other, 
its just a case of which one we get out of the door first. Also, since 
the QA team is largely a different set of people helping out with 
CentOS-6 and the infra team, there might be a a bit of potential to keep 
more people busy productively through the next few weeks if we were to 
get the 5.6 isos and tree over into QA first.

Lets see if we can get a decision on irc later today. The over whelming 
requests seem to be to get 5.6 out first, but its always good to talk 
about - there are valid points in either direction.
