I apologize for not having anything more substantial to bring to this
conversation, but I had two points to make:

1.  I'm really glad to see people looking at the purpose and goals of
Rawhide and making sure that it's playing a unique and useful part in
the development of Fedora.

2.  I was having a conversation with a friend who recently took the
Rawhide plunge on a laptop for fun, and was incredibly surprised to
find everything working, and working *well*.  So much so that he's
continued to use it since and very excited about Fedora 11 as a
result.
