  i'm going to echo an earlier sentiment and say that, as much as i
grouse about this release confusion and frustration, i appreciate the
efforts of the centos folks and maybe i should stop grousing and
volunteer to help out.

  just FYI, my impatience at getting my hands on 5.4 is based on the
fact that i'm scheduled to teach a small class next month on RHEL, and
the students are indifferent as to whether it's actual RHEL or centos,
and they're also good with it being 5.3 or 5.4, so i was hoping to get
centos 5.4 ASAP and play with it just to make sure i'm comfortable
with the changes.

  if i teach off of 5.3, it's not a big deal, but 5.4 would just be a
bit more fun.
