I am in firm agreement here.  Early in the FC2 cycle, I was very interested
in working with the kernel.  I came to realise that everything I was
looking at was at least 36 hours old (dave -> buildsystem, buildsystem ->
rawhide, rawhide -> mirror, mirror -> local sync) In the end I just gave up
for this test cycle because 36 hours is a very long time that early in the
test release process.  Hopefully CVS will come online at some point and
ease the lag there, better if it is in time for the FC3 test cycle.
