Johnny, chill. I don't blame him for being confused. Up until right now,
you updated to a point release, then, over the weeks and months, there
were updates. All of a sudden, there are *no* updates for the 6.0 point
release, which is a major change in what everyone expected, based on
history. My manager, only yesterday, figured that for any updates at all
to 6.0, we had to use the CR repo, and we're just starting that,

And remember, this is the community *Enterprise* (level) o/s. There are
reasons that we run CentOS, and not (*bleah*) fedora.
