There's not much wrong with the stoutest of horseradishes, as I
learned from the parking lot of a restaurant one evening in .at ---
you must know of what I write.

N >, where N is larger than the CentOS team, are more likely to find
more problems sooner with the proposed release if given the first

of packages in the distro continues to increase.

For example, on one machine, I run Ubuntu 11.04 Server Alpha 2 just
for the potential joy of contributing back to the community what I
might find.

That opportunity is not met by current CentOS policy :(
