Get over yourself. Your migration to another OS just because you don't 
like to see childish non-contributors bash the hard working volunteers 
isn't something that needs to be posted to the development list.

This rant really doesn't belong here either but I hope that people will 
still take a deep breath, calm down for a second, and consider the 
amount of hard work that all the real devs put in. Having to listen to 
all of the whiners criticizing their work over and over again *when they 
have already released all of that information*, I can understand why 
Johnny would respond that way - and I don't blame him! I respond exactly 
the same way then 20th time I've been asked the same question when I've 
answered it every time.

Have you ever had a small child pester you while you're trying to cook 
dinner? Answer "are we there yet" every 5 minutes on a six hour drive? 
That's what you people are doing to the devs!

There is no secret sauce.
The scripts have been publicly released.
The build process has been described in enough detail that anybody 
capable of doing it should be able to do it with the information that 
has been posted to this list and the CentOS Wiki.
Karanbir has already committed to more documentation once v6 is out the 

Knock it off, get over yourselves, have some patience, and stop posting 
to this list if you don't have anything positive to contribute.
