Amen to that.  Shouldn't allow the actions of a couple of 'overeager'
folks to tar the whole Centos project.  Several WBEL bugs didn't ship in
RC1 because a Centos devel tipped me off on problems they encountered,
so a big thank you to em all.  Hopefully they will be able to reign in
the excesses of their webmaster^H^H^Hfans before they become a source of
negative will for their project.

The Free Software world really doesn't have a place for Team OS/2 like
religious zealotry; unless it is the daily two minute hate directed at
"Dominant North American Proprietary Software Vendor", "Prominent North
American Enterprise Linux Vendor" (but only on odd numbered days, on the
even ones they are hailed as Heros of the Revolution) or of course the
US Patent & Trademark Office.  :)
