Re: KDE vs. GNOME on F10

Well with the no frozen rawhide proposal, from the Alpha freeze point on

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.

How does that differ from the current situation (except for being a little more bleeding)?

A true rolling release is install-once, update-forever. Yes you can more or less do this with upgrade-via-yum, but it is still a large chunk of effort at 6- or 12-month intervals.

Oh, and on a related note, it would be really helpful if it was possible to enable updates-testing only for certain packages (and when needed, dependencies thereof) on a permanent whitelist basis.

include=<package> in the yum conf for updates-testing.

Will that also use packages from -testing when needed to resolve dependencies for something in the include list? Or will it just break? ('man yum.conf' makes it sound like the latter...)
