Redhat needs to get their butt into gear and allow purchasing of
entitlements for RHEL online.  Currently I have to wait over a week to get
a set of CD's shipped to me that i dont need just to get an entitlement
for a new server.  And what happens in aa year when I have to renew these
things at random times. (not really random, butnot all at once).  Redhat
needs to work on how they are selling RHEL.

Not something for this list to be discussed i know.
