I know the feeling.

I would agree with that statement. Figuring out how to give up (some)
control is often one of the hardest things to do. Let's hope that when
John has the time, he will seriously consider building a team to help him.

Also, clarifying his stance on what WBEL is or isn't would also be nice.
 There are clearly two views on this list -- people who think if we
don't like WBEL's structure to move along and use CentOS and people
(like myself) who think John wanted more than that when he started WBEL.
