This is an interesting list. And to me, sending out a RC to a small 
selection of the partners is a grand idea. Looks like this partner list 
includes just about any aspect of real world computing. For instance, I 
would want my RC to be installed on as many new and varied computer 
systems as possible to check for compatibility issues. Each of these 
partner groups has a specialty. Seems extremely logical to send a RC out 
to them. Also, as they are 'partners' and not the world, would this be 
any different from sharing the RC around within the RedHat offices?

Either way, this thread is really sounding a lot like we are just 
getting antsy for CentOS 6! ;) I'm chomping at the bit for like 2 years 
now. Fortunately I selected a titanium bit because if I ever manage to 
chew through it, I must migrate to Fedora. :)  Patience grasshopper.

Can we start asking when CentOS 7 is going to be released now? HAH!!!

Thanks CentOS team!
