I'll repost this because I believe Kevin had a good point:

I don't understand why we are trying to reinvent the wheel here.  The infrastructure for Kevin's suggestion
is in place now - KDE has been using it and it works.

However, I also do not see why we cannot just do such big updates through
the regular update process rather than in a big .1 drop. The KDE SIG has
experience with pushing big grouped updates that look a lot like a .1
release for Plasma users. They go through the regular update process just
fine. Grouping them together with updates to GNOME, LibreOffice etc. in one
batch is not necessary and would only add unnecessary delays.

I think pushing all updates in a big drop will actually make them LESS
tested than if they just trickle through one at a time.

That is an excellent point.  KDE for some time has been pushing out large updates
using the regular update process.  What is the issue with just doing this?  It certainly seems 
much more straight forward and easier than ~.x updates.  Fedora version releases could then be 
reserved for structural / architectural concerns rather than software updates and bug fixes.

Fedora stays fast moving and Fedora X releases come less often - seems like a win / win.
