With RHEL5 out, I question the need for Fedora on the builders. In fact,
before the merge, all the internal Core builders were running RHEL4. Can we
not use RHEL5 on the builders now?
What are the arguments against "eating our own dogfood" and running on FedoraX?
I know there are probably good reasons, but thought it would be good to get it out in the
open as others less informed (like myself) will probably ask :)
