I wasn't bashing, I just assumed that different people in the CentOS chain had
much different schedules as to what gets done when.

I don't expect up to the minute changes here, because ... frankly... You get
what you pay for. And since most users of CentOS aren't paying, the developers
have to keep day jobs for those luxuries like food and heat, a roof over their
heads, etc...

MailScanner is like deodorant...
You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
