The rtems packages on ftp.rtems.org labeled "CentOS6", so far have been
built with RHEL6 beta packages, presuming centos.org would release
CentOS 6 not too much after RHEL6.
Meanwhile, almost 8 months have passed by, but CentOS 6 still is not
out. However the RHEL-beta is showing its age, diverges increasingly
from RHEL6 and becomes increasingly difficult to use and to access.
Therefore, I have decided to (temporarily?) suspend support of the RTEMS
toolchains for CentOS6.
In practice this means, these repositories will not receive any further
rtems-toolchain updates before CentOS 6 will be released or a suitable
substitute for CentOS 6 has been found.
FWIW: The CentOS calendar currently tells CentOS 6 was scheduled
for Jul 4 ... we'll see if this date will slip again ;)
