We have a chance here : Fedora Core 7 will be out in 2007. What about
sticking to years now ? Fedora 8 will come out in 2008 ?
And name the releases according to it : Fedora Linux 7.1 for the spring
release and Fedora 7.2 for the autumn release.

What we can see in the fedora development is that it seems to have a
major release every year or so, followed by a more polished one.

FC2 was a polish release of FC1
FC4 ... FC3
FC6 ... FC5

Then we can expect FC7.1 being a major release, and FC7.2 being a polish
release.
