Re: OT: Pushing back Time

(Yes, I'm top posting, but it's only to make this point, and to actually,
maybe, have it seen)

Guys, I doubt that he was trying to troll, in this case.  It seemed to me
that he was simply pointing out something he thought was humorous.

What I suspect is that Chris is not subscribed to the
fedora-announce-list, and hasn't necessarily seen the announcements that
the date was slipping by a week or more, due to the fixes, etc.

So, maybe we should cut him a little slack?
