oh please -- You've been around software, computers, and FOSS 
long enough to know the game --

Publish a schedule and take a day longer.  Not soon enough, 
why are they so slow, and if a miss, the sky is falling, in 
commercial world angry stockholder suits, and all the 
externalities; don't publish a schedule and say: when it is 
ready, or enforce no un-planned leaks like Apple or RHT: 
just as much carping, but no miss.

People can project their expectations all they wish; I won't 
feed those

The sub-domain under discussion and mentioned by hughesjr and 
others is a sub-doamin of centos.org.  I believe the group has 
sketched it out already.  Website, front page, top right:

 	The CentOS project is now in control of the CentOS.org
 	... domain ...

but as I said before, people do not read, or will not believe 
what we write. More details appear when we release more 

Who is the fool here?
