Having looked at the way releasing packages and versions in linux has
been moving in a number of distributions it is interesting that there
are several that now have a rolling-release model.
Three of these are:
Gentoo is also essentially a rolling release distribution.
Fedora would appear to be out of line in not taking on board the
potential user base for a rolling release version. For servers there
would be huge advantages in management of systems.
Is there any support at all within the development community for a
rolling release version of Fedora (and possibly ulitimately Redhat)?
Is there a possibility that not moving to rolling release could
ultimately damage Fedora in the future as other distributions increase
their support base?
I thought this might lead to a useful discussion and this post is not
supposed to be a flame bait but a genuine question that is potentially
quite fundamental to the future of Fedora. Applying innovative and
careful thought to this question might be helpful to the Fedora
project as a whole.
