I would say that people know that 5.2 work and looking at changelogs, they don't see a real NEED to install 5.3. I personally always have the newest release though.

One thing I would say to improve visibility, is making a bigger release. It took me a few days to find out that 5.3 was actually out. Maybe digg.com... Etc.

Subject: [CentOS] the 5.2 loaders

Just looking around at log files and other places, I noticed today that 
there are still a lot of people installing and downloading 5.2.

While a large number of installs would be since people already have the 
5.2 media - thats fine, however, new downloads for 5.2 media today makes 
little sense ( to me ) - so whats going on here ?

What can we do in order to better, faster, more visibly communicate the 
fact that 5.3 is the new target most people should be focusing on.

I cam imagine there are people with specific needs and they would want 
the 5.2 media - but not a number so large, that its almost 80% of all 
the people downloading 5.3 these days.
