I called it: CentOS 6 release date
In the interview I did with Troy Dawson of Scientific Linux, I mention that my prediction for CentOS 6.0 is July 11th... but that interview is dated June 6th. Not so prophetic really... but I know I had been saying that for a while. Well, it looks like CentOS 6.0 is coming out on July 11th... or maybe the 12th... depending on when they do he bit flip.
I decided to search my IRC logs for "July 11" to see how far back I originally guessed. I knew that it has been at least a couple of months earlier than June. here's what I found:

<dowdle> bodhi_zazen: And then the plan is for 2-3 weeks after 5.6 is out, 6.0 will be released. I'll believe that when I see it. My guess for CentOS 6.0 is July 11.

<dowdle> kaptk2: I don't think anyone is going to displace CentOS anytime soon. I think Scientific Linux is good too... and I'm sure it is growing given the fact that CentOS 6 is so late. My release guess for CentOS 6 is July 11th. :)

<dowdle> kaptk2: FIIK. My guess for a release date was July 11 and I thought that was overdoing it... but it looks like not. If you want it now, use Scientific Linux.

<dowdle> kaptk2: But of course the dir perms are too restrictive so it'll probably be a few days before they do the bit flip. I want a prize if my July 11th prediction is correct. :)
Update: Looks like they did something unusual and flipped the bit (where the directory is publicly readable) today... on a Sunday... so I was off by one day.
