EL5 got a bunch of updates that really need to make it out asap, and
while 4.9 settles down - the thinking is to get them released into the
5.5/updates repo. I'll have an exact list of what all is going to make
it in the day tomorrow, along with the packages.
To answer my own question, this is a decent summary of the situation:
About the best I can suggest it to voice your concerns calmly and politely on venues where the developers hang out - primarily IRC and the mailing lists - and not the fora. Dag has consistently been a strong voice for more open and robust procedures and development environment, but sometimes the way he says things is counterproductive.
As far as the PHBs - if they do insist on a commercially supported environment, I'd surely try to steer them toward RHEL and away from Oracle. CentOS and other rebuilds could not exist without RHEL. They would do just fine, and probably better, without Oracle Linux.
I'll agree that Dag can sometimes sound prickly, but he's got a very valid point.
Hopefully, my message was suitably calm and polite.
