I agree with you and your assessment 100%, Donald. The whole deal with
Fedora, as noted in the beginning, that it is a hot test bed for RHEL
and it will be cyclical, ever evolving at the bleeding edge. No where
does the intro to Fedora say that it is a good server candidate.
As I posted before, from what I perceive that I read, FC6 is supposed to
be the last edition in that devel cycle and FC7, or whatever they call
it, should be settled down and hopefully remain that way for a much
longer period of time. It might even be a server candidate, I dunno. I
understand that they haven't gone to all the expense to support Fedora
for us for our pure bumpin' enjoyment, but maybe Rahul will drop it on
us and put all of the speculation to rest. That would be a good thing.
