FWIW, the date on the iso's is March 14th.  To me, this means that it was
"completed/packaged/ready-to-go" on that date.  It wasn't until after that
date that notice was sent out that the iso's would be available to RHN
customers on March 31st.

I'm certain that Red Hat would have tailored their announcements had the
"completion/packaging/ready-to-go" date was different.

A lot more work goes into a "release" than the general public is aware of.
