Max already had a "chat" with the involved parties about it.  (:  It was
mostly a poor choice of words, calling Fedora an alpha.  The point being is
that RHEL gets an excellent foundation (ie, real-world/live use and
testing), and that foundation comes from Fedora, so there's less/no need
anymore for RHEL-tech-previews, etc, that served that role (for RHEL) in
the past.
