RHEL update releases are coming at about every 6-7 months. The 6.0
release was in November. 6.1 beta is out. You can do your math.
Keep in mind that IPA in RHEL 6.1 will be in tech preview. This means
that it will work but it is not in the state when we are confident that
it meets all usual RHEL related quality expectations of our customers.
So we will be stabilizing it in upcoming months so that we can declare
full support in 6.2 later this year.
