John posted last night on nahant-list so I know he's alive
I think it unspoken that John would probably prefer that users not rely
upon him/beau.org and I can't say that I blame him.
Clearly the option available to users is to use CentOS or maintain your
own boxes yourself (download the SRPM's and build away).
Certainly John has helped make all of this possible and we owe him a
thank you for all his efforts but I can see why he might not want to
suffer the burdens of every ones expectations.
