And this is the crux of our problem:

fedora is for latest leading-edge pkgs. It's not easy or reasonable to
have the latest of things AND have a stable interface for them.

So if latest software is fedora's raison d'etre then it sure seems like
fedora is just not for you.

how else do we set reasonable expectations?

I think more to the crux, we're leading-edge in rawhide, but then that
leading-edge flows right into our "stable" releases, as in the stable
releases continue to be 'leading-edge' and change things on users.

If we adopted more of a stance of leading edge on rawhide, stability in
our releases, I think we'd have less grumpy users.

I tend to agree, but I very much doubt this would be doable without
some form of enforcement and policy around updates.  We could start
by focusing on critpath, but that would not catch the Thunderbird
issue (for example).

So we won't catch everything. I think it's better to catch SOMETHINGs.
