R P Herrold reacted to mail that looked like totally unnecessary. I will 
not get into his reaction, but I was confused why you sent that mail and 
to whom was directed.  I was not able to find a point that was not said, 
  and was wondering why you posted it, then I disregarded it and forgot 
it. I guess Herrold misinterpreted your post for trying to stir trouble.

I was first to suggest that C6.1 **might** be released in **about** a 
month from C6.0. Why? Because I suspect that since RHEL 6.1 srpms are 
already published, devs could use free time, while waiting for QA team 
to find bugs, to dry-run 6.1 srpms and see how many problems there are. 
Any having fresh experience with 6.0, they do not need to try to 
remember what was it that made a problem several months ago, in case of 
version to version time span. I believe that devs are already working on 
  6.1, lightly but steadily.

Then everybody cough on that and started endless flame-war.
