Except this is not what the developers of CentOS are saying. They are
saying 2-4 weeks after the Red Hat point release, and that the four
weeks may slip to six weeks. For the sake of argument, just assume
eight weeks out (on the outside) and don't worry about it. Nothing
like armchair generals trying to tell those in the trenches how they
*should* do their job.
