hi Guys,

>  does not directly have a relation to centos development, its also not a
>  list to discuss development issues with code and process that isnt
>  centos itself. Its not a place to announce stuff, its also not a place
>  to have social and 'in the old days...' or 'when i was young..' or
>  politics ( around open source, generic software, technology or otherwise ).
>  Recently lots of fluff being posted here is just noise and really not
>  appropriate for this list. The end result is that most of the people

>  its all irrelevant and offtopic noise.
>  Its not a good situation to be in, so a polite request from my side -

I agree.  I've been watching this list for updates on whats happening 
with the status of 5.6 and 6.0.  About all I do at this point is scan 
over the digest to see if there is anything that ISN"T completely 
irrelevant to the intent of the list.

Please take all non CentOS dev conversations elsewhere, and let those 
that are dev's concentrate on getting the work done rather than 
addressing unrelated fluff as KB has done here.  Their dev's not gossip 

FWIW, yes I do consider my message unrelated, even though it's in 
support of the original intention of this list.
