Yes. I don't know how much, but the idea is that rawhide will continue
to get radicial development, while the next release will more conservative
updates, similar to updates for a stable release.

I think the idea is that normal testing would follow the development release
and not rawhide. Unless you were particular interested in some feature
being developed for the next after release.
