They come up every time that the methodology and resources of the 
developers don't produce the results expected by the users.  The fact 
that this has historically only happened around release times is 
coincidental.  People are (correctly) fearful of putting blind faith in 
optimistic engineers who say everything will be fine without saying why 
they believe that or why they reject suggestions for changes that might 
be improvements.

While SL and other distributions are perfectly fine for almost all uses, 
there's a certain irony in the fact the single advantage of CentOS is 
the ease of converting from it to a paid/supported RHEL installation, 
and the RH changes that make the rebuild difficult are driving people away.
