Russ, I have no knowledge of what work you did, what it entails and what 
the results of it were. I don't think I was involved in any way and the 
secrecy and non-transparancy is a hard pill to swallow.

I don't think it does any good for CentOS, the project, especially if 
there is an unwillingness to explain the discrepancy of what is being said 
(we cannot "deep link") and what is done (security advisories, bugs, ...).

We end up in half-measures and confusion as a result of scare-tactics.

(I cannot guarantee that the issue ends with this, but this thread will.)
