your use of the wbel name indicates some form of transfer of trust and
the signing key from John to yourself ? I did ask, but never got a reply
from you on that issue.

Sure, I accept that people have asked why when ever this point has been
raised previously, but apart from 'emotional attachment' I dont think
there is any other reason from your side thats ever come through as to
why not. If there is a reason why people would hesitate to move to
CentOS, perhaps we would like to know ? If there something that can be
done to fix that issue, then we will.

I am not trying to save yourself from anything. feel free to jump into
any ditch you fancy. But, dont take others down with you.

hoping to be able to help people like my friend, who had 6 of his wbel
powered machines hacked, since there were known exploits for stuff that
were not fixed in time.
And finally, I dont recall seeing anyone inviting you to come and join
the CentOS project. Maybe I missed that one.
