Exactly!

Right again :)

As this is the *stable* Fedora Core release discussion list a discussion
about a test release is wrong here. So the flaming Ken did pretty well
show his ignorance, because if he would have chosen the proper mailing
list, he could have found a big discussion about the topic "kernel
source code not coming in an rpm with FC3 test releases and later the
stable one" - though as Paul very correct showed the kernel source _is_
available, just with a src.rpm. The reasons have been controversial
discussed on the proper list.
