Considering that it took them 3 months to get out the 5.6 update and
that upstream is adding packages that weren't ready when 6.0 was
released, I would think that one month is highly optimistic but two
things are certain. Upstream released exactly 6 months ago and still
nothing and apparently today's target date has slipped, and 2) until
CentOS admits that there is a problem, nothing will actually change.
