If whoever wants to help out in a community project, and then see that when
a task come and then gives a response that this was the wrong timing, due
to other obligations - this is pretty fair response.

Committing to a community project does not mean you have the resources
available for your disposal whenever you need it.  People committing to a
community project just gives you an idea that people are interested in
helping out.

Okay, I see that the CentOS developers are under a high pressure and stress
level.  Maybe a too high stress level.  So I'm willing to stretch myself
that far to see this incident in that light.

Even though I do not know the background for this attack,  I do dislike
this kind of personal attacks - at least in the full public.  I'm
disappointed to see such happening here by the key people in the CentOS

kind regards,
