wounded in the line of duty
Well, it's obvious from the many threads the past few months that there is great resistance to transparency. The past weeks it has been explicitly stated by Johnny that the 'C' in CentOS only means a 'community' of users can use CentOS freely, but the development will stay a 'closed' process. They don't feel any need or obligation to open the process and make it a proper community project.
That CentOS will not be Enterprise-ready is obvious to me since they don't see a need to improve the process either or make faster releases. They apparently don't mind that a release can be made 3 months after RHEL. And that CentOS users have no security updates for 50% of the time (6 months). So the only part of the name that has any meaning is 'OS'.
To me CentOS has been effectively reduced to being an 'OS' :-/ I give up caring about this, other opportunities or alternatives deserve the effort of the community more than 'OS'...
