Brad's assessment says we are intentionally -refusing- to commit. I 
don't like such a theme, and I certainly don't think it is correct.

We're doing as much as possible to ensure ppc has a 2004.0 genkernel 
profile and to ensure 2004.0 is fully build by catalyst.
However, it is clear that genkernel in its current form would probably 
not allow us to update the kde/gnome cd before 2004.0:
My request for both an informal genkernel and catalyst status update 
(on the 2nd of february) are still unanswered.
A direct result is that I couldn't tell whether cloop was planned or 
not.

A cd was needed for fosdem (already on the 22nd of february), requested 
by the store, and hasn't been updated for a long while.
I wanted to update the kde/gnome cd, and have reused the same initrd 
for the other cds, to avoid duplicating work.
PPC is fully committed to both genkernel and catalyst (both are 
excellent products).

I am going to create and commit a genkernel profile today. Again, we 
are not refusing to commit but rather limited in time and manpower.
Next time, please ask.

Pieter
