Why isn't 5 days enough to fix it?

The message is dated March 15. The release date is March 20. Does it take 5 days to push the distro to the mirrors? Or is Fedora busy printing disks? Isn't a community based distribution supposed to have a shorter turnaround time for the bugs? This is one of the bugs that should be fixed quickly - it's in a package that everyone uses, and the fix is simple, straightforward and well understood.
I have no problems with being Fedora's guinea pig as long as the experiment results are not discarded or delayed beyond reasonable time.
