1.  Is CentOS-7.3 done yet?  Answer:  NO!

And it is NOT CentOS-7.3 .. it is CentOS-7 (1611) based on RHEL-7.3
Sources.  The main tree will be labeled '7.3.1611' on the mirrors (along
side 7.0.1406 and 7.1.1503, and 7.2.1511, all of which are already there)

2.  When will it be done?
  a.  Short Answer:  No idea :) (when it is done!)

  b.  Long Answer:  We normally have CR out 7-14 days after a RHEL-7
release.  We normally have the full tree and ISOs out 14-28 days after
the CR is out.

Complicating this particular release, we have our annual CentOS Board
Meeting (face to face) in Paris next week and I get on airplane(s) from
Texas to Paris on Monday 9/7/2016, so there will be one full wasted day
there.  Obviously the rest of the team will also be traveling to the
meeting as well.

I will try to tweet updates (@JohnnyCentOS) and post updates here
throughout the build period.

Currently we are building gcc/glibc and modifying the packages that need
mods and calculating the build order for the SRPM package set.  There
seem to be 602 SRPMs that need to be rebuilt on first look.
