The labelling is like a 'release candidate' process: if no significant
problems reveal themselves with a particular release after a
reasonable amount of time, and I believe it is at least as 'stable' as
the existing release labelled 'stable', I'll move the label forward.

None of the lvm2 2.02 releases so far deserved that label - there was
some problem or other with each of them.  With the current release,
I think we're quite close now.

RHEL aims at stability and so takes bug fixes more quickly than it
takes enhancements and other changes.

Fedora tracks upstream development more closely.
