Um...  Perhaps it's just me...

But the QA calendar says "QA dates are tentative dates for internal planning
only.  These dates are not official release dates, but only a guide for
the QA team.  All target dates are subject to change."

That indicates, to me at least, that changes should be expected.  I
would be more concerned if changes did not occur.

Linkedin has nothing to do with this and you're just grasping at straws.
It's been quite clear that you've no actual understanding of what goes
into a respin; in fact, since you've nothing but dirt to sling how about
this?  I publicly challenge you to put out your own respin.  You
apparently think that it's easy, so put your money where your mouth is
and do it.

And yet...  You're still here blathering and crying.

And where, might I ask, is your contribution?  Or do you just like to
cry?  Should I send you a cartoon of Kleenex?

How does SL6 have anything at all to do with "coming out of" CentOS?
It's a separate and distinct project with dissimilar goals.

With no updates unless you pay.  Yes, that's quite useful for the enterprise.

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"
