Hi Brandon, KB
Yes - the below conclusion is correct.
We are pushing and 'poking' Red Hat to release the SRPMS on redhat ftp
site on a weekly basis... once we have a ETA date we will let the team
We look forward to working closely withe the CentOS folks to create
the CentOS HPC distro and to form the HPC SIG...
ps. Brandon - did you pick up the bjob t-shirt at Platform's booth? if
you did not... you may want to go back and get it!

It sounds like we are all still waiting on Red Hat to release their
source packages on the FTP site. Due to the nature of the
partnership, Platform cannot provide us with the SRPMs - they have
to come from RH. It sounded like the folks at Platform might be able
to poke some people to make this happen at little sooner?
Once this happens, the next step would probably be to set up an HPC
project and SIG on the CentOS website, and start building / testing
the packages. Once the packages look stable, perhaps a repo on the
mirrors would be appropriate?
