This isn't just a matter of perception though that plays a big part. The
fundamental issue here seems to be quality including making the right
decisions initially as well as continue to be regression free as much as
possible post release. Looking at Fedora 9, there is a cost to bringing
in new technologies (Xorg 7.4, KDE 4 etc). KDE 4 has increasingly got
bad press and that is going to rub off on Fedora 9 quite a bit. We
aren't going to convert Fedora into a very conservative distribution
suddenly but the situation can be improved.
Post-release we have had atleast one major screwup of breaking encrypted

While we have changed the policies to adopt, every release has a few of
these. I am hoping Red Hat focuses on getting automated tests running
for beaker on a daily basis for all the updates we ever push out
including for rawhide
Meanwhile there are other manual QA activities including test cases and
bug triaging which can help quite a bit
I am trying to see if we can fix our response time to be better via
