A driveby waste of space post was one by a certain Karanbir
telling someone to recklessly upgrade Gnome when this is supposed
to be an enterprise distro.

What do you mean barriers? I have perused through a few lists
and none of the the devs on other lists have an attitude like 
yours. This is why I think this fragmentation of the mailing
lists is not to solve any "problem" other than that perceived 
by those 17 foot tall with egos to match.

If people using CentOS are having problems e.g with the kernel
and the devs don't have time to respond to questions on the
list or on the forum, they don't have any extra sensory perception
powers to automagically know that Johnny is working on those do
