Meh, centos6 certainly has taken awhile.  My own outsiders' point of view:
1.  it has indeed been too long, largely because they're testing/QA 
standards seem to have grown overly strict.
2.  Mix in point releases for both centos5 and centos4 in the meantime 
that kept them busy.
3.  the centos team processes had been overly opaque historically, but 
most folks didn't mind too much since they always produced; though 
transparency has been slowly improving over time.
4. it is not unheard of for dag to pull ego/publicity stunts like this 
when things don't go 100% his way.
