wow - even if someone makes a compliment it is taken rude - impressive

the difference shortly before a new RHEL release is that the timeframe
is *much* more important for the RH folks than some random release

accept it or not - you can't change the facts - period

so what - lead does not mean "lead for every price at any moment of time"

you could be even more proud if they would have happened anyways
but not that disruptive

and systemd with the state of F16/F17 and more server packages converted to systemd-units
would not have been that disruptive - period - in general systemd is a great improvement
and honestly before F15 was released the description and goals where things i really loved
to see, but not in a hurry, not in that state
