Hasnt happened yet in 7+ years of watching Red Hat. Open Source projects
can move at either dead, slow, or metero fast rate. Those projects that
move the quickest usually are the most wanted by users also.. so what
you end up with is a lot of bad emails and webpages about how sloooow
Red Hat is and how they are being a Microsoft by holding back Open
Source development with their slow updates and striving for backwards
compatibility.
