Well with the no frozen rawhide proposal, from the Alpha freeze point on
there would be such an updates-testing for the pending release, while
rawhide remains the wild west.  You could say install F12, then at F13
Alpha jump onto F13 and have the much newer more often content that has
had some testing.  Just keep jumping to the next Alpha and you have your
"rolling release" as it were.
