I believe your conflating a couple of our deliverables. There is
Rawhide, which is our development stream. All kinds of fun stuff
happens here, and this is where the new stuff lands to be tested out and
experimented with. If you build it, it'll show up here.
i don't know if i'm _that_ adventurous.
"many changes are not heavily tested (or tested at all) "
"packages in Rawhide can and do break without warning"
People who wish
to live in the edge have the choice of using rawhide, or updating every
6 months or so to the next Branched tree.
actually, i have been receiving updates to newer versions, as well as bug &
security fixes, in a very timely fashion.
(and, i'm very satisfied with the quality of those updates)
but let's say Fedora goes this route:
waiting those months might mean missing too many updates,
but: rawhide will become Fedora N+1.
so- would some steps be taken to ensure that software
being worked on for Fedora 14 will work on Fedora 13?
limiting updates to the bugfix and security issue type should not have
an impact on Fedora's ability to innovate.
i'm not so sure. those other updates allow new software to reach
more people, with less delay, and "providing" (at least for upstream
partners) "a much larger audience and more feedback"
Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
Love is the law, love under will.
