He did say 'CentOS in three months', and given that as I recall 5.3 to
5.4 took 2 months and 5.4 to 5.5 took about the same amount of time, 3
months hopefully isn't unrealistic? If it is, maybe someone could or
should put out a call for more volunteers? Of course 6.0 may end up
being more than 3 months after upstream release, but time will tell.
