About rawhide: rawhide could/should contain more experimental stuff,
such as beta releases or cvs snapshots of actively and frequently
developed software.

About F-11, F-12, F-13: yeah, pretty much. They should all contain the
same stable version of most software. (e.g. I don't like not being
able to update some of my gtk packages, because the gtk maintainers
don't update their package in older releases.)

Are we at the wrong place? Is there such a distro?
