wounded in the line of duty
The lack of communication (and abrupt nature of what little there has been) has led me to consider moving away from CentOS this release.
I'm a huge fan of the project, and have used it on dozens of live systems both privately and in business, but any community driven effort that seems hell-bent on actively discouraging community effort ("don't bother helping, it's quicker for us to just do it than train you" - ?!) beggars belief, and as for the treatment of the guy who was offering hardware to the project the other week, well...
I learned Linux on Red Hat derivative and re-packaged distributions and really thought CentOS had it right, but I thought the C stood for 'Community' and there doesn't seem to be a lot of that at the moment. I was even ready to try and help out with re-packaging and QA when I saw CentOS 6 was taking some time, but the way the 'community' treated everyone that offered I didn't want the grief!
Maybe it's time to trade my RHCSA in, and put the time I had spent training for RHCE into learning 'Ubuntu Professional'.
