You must get tired easily. I've been on this list for about two
weeks now (basically since RHEL5 came out) and I've only seen
this question asked a few times. Regardless, since you can't
control what other people know and/or ask, I suggest you learn
to deal with it.

He never suggested that the developers were too slow, that they
should devote more time to it, that they should devote less
time to their real jobs, or any other criticism. It was an
innocent question, so why don't you give Indunil a break?

I didn't see him demand that a "developer" answer the question.

And since it was his first time asking, how does that qualify as

Software releases often have a release schedule or goal; in the
absence of one on the CentOS site (no, that's not a criticism)
it's quite natural that one would join the forum and ask.

I hate to cross words with someone so early in my subscription
to this list, but dude: chill!
