What - the statement on Dag's website or your assumption?

Rip-off is a harsh word.
Ok, so I donated nothing so far, but still, this is a bit unfair to  
the rest of the team who are (now) scrambling to get their act together.

A case could be made wether it was negligent to leave that matter  
hanging for so long - but I'm glad that the rest of the CentOS team is  
- at least publicly - not fuming with hate and anger but rather  
looking forward.
