We do this because the lifecycle of Fedora is not compatible with
providing and maintaining a long life hosting infrastructure. Does that
mean that Fedora is not an ideal platform for server deployments lasting
longer than a year and a half? Yes, in my humble opinion.

Don't get me wrong, the lifecycle of Fedora is great for many things,
but the lifecycle of RHEL is far more appropriate for our hosting and
infrastructure needs.
