Warren no longer works for Red Hat.

I have indeed been working on trying to pick things up. I managed to get
LTSP working in F13 and published the .rpm's as well.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=598134

The big issue now is the Major changes in F14 are causing some issues
trying to get LTSP working @ all. I am still working on this and have a
friend who is also trying to help, But we are both also swamped with
workloads that seem never ending.

I aim is to have my .rpm's in the Official F13 Repos very early next
year. and then work on seeing *if* LTSP will ever work on F14/RHEL6/CentOS6.

We do have some Bugzilla's open for the work. So as soon as things calm
down here @ work, I will get strait back on the LTSP Train.

This is a sad truth @ the moment...

With the issues in RHEL 6.0 I 110% agree with Peter here, I would also
hold off a little while until the silly little issues have been worked
out with RHEL 6.0 and 6.1 is released.
